The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio
- 1 hr 39 min
A simple housewife is desperate to make ends meet, and she decides on an unconventional way of doing so. She scours magazines and newspapers for contests and enters each one of them. She has a remarkable gift for knowing exactly what the contest runners are looking for. Most of the contests she enters call for light verse of some kind. Sometimes she wins cash with her clever rhymes, and sometimes she wins something else that is of value to the household, such as a refrigerator or a grocery store shopping spree. Her ingenuity in the face of hardship is inspiring.
