The entertaining comedy, “The Curious Savage,” written by John Patrick, is the story of an elderly widow, Mrs. Savage, whose husband left her $10 million dollars. She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their dreams, but her stepchildren strongly object. To stop this, they commit her to a sanatorium where the gentle residents become her “new family.” Directed by Max G. Merchen.
“People say I love you all the time – when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it – you just have to listen for it, my dear.”
― John Patrick, The Curious Savage
“The Curious Savage” is the story of an elderly widow named Mrs. Savage, whose husband has left her $10 million dollars. She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their “foolish dreams,” but her stepchildren strongly object.
To prevent her from doing away with their family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, they have her committed to a sanatorium called The Cloisters, and it is among the gentle residents there that she finds her true family. “
The Curious Savage” is a warm comedy that compares the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the greed and hostility of so-called “normal people.” It opened in New York on Broadway in 1950 and played 31 performances with star Lillian Gish in the titular role.
