“The Curious Savage,”
is the warm-hearted tale of Mrs. Ethel Savage, a slightly eccentric,
extremely wealthy widow. . .
Being the recipient of her deceased husband’s estate, she wants to make
the best use of it, despite her greedy stepchildren’s selfish attempts
to get their hands on it. Mrs. Savage, however, has put her wealth into
negotiable bonds in the hopes of establishing a fund to help others
realize their hopes and dreams, much to the siblings’ chagrin. They then
commit her to a “sanatorium” in the hopes of shocking her to her senses.
There she meets a variety of social misfits, all needing exactly the
kind of help Mrs. Savage can provide and who eventually appear more sane
that those outside the walls of the institution. These wonderful
individuals immediately endear themselves to Mrs. Savage. With the help
of her new-found friends, Mrs. Savage leads her stepchildren on a merry
chase! A lovely story about what it means to be a family.
