Happiness is a 1917 comedy-drama feature film written by C. Gardner Sullivan and starring Enid Bennett and Charles Gunn. A rich orphan and heiress played by Bennett is described in the newspapers as "the richest and most snobbish girl in America."[1] She goes to a co-ed college where she is snubbed by students who view her as a snob. A romance develops with a poor student (played by Charles Gunn) who is taking in washing to pay his way through college. A print exists in the Library of Congress collection.[2][3]
