The Curious Savage tells the tale of Mrs. Ethel P. Savage, who inherits a business empire worth ten million dollars from her husband. Wanting to create a "happiness fund" in his name to help people realize their dreams, no matter how foolish, she sells the family businesses and converts the cash to negotiable securities, concealing their location from her grown stepchildren. Believing the money to be their birthright, her stepchildren commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses" and reveal the location of the money. There, she bonds instantly with the other "guests" of the institution who, believing in the justice of her cause, conspire with Mrs. Savage to confound her stepchildren and achieve her dream.
