The lonesomest of the titular lonesome ladies is Polly Fosdick (Anna Q. Nilsson), the wife of wealthy John Fosdick (Lewis Stone). Convinced that her husband is playing the field with sexy widow Mrs. St. Clair (Jane Winton), Polly follows the advice of her block-headed girlfriends and accepts a dinner invitation from rakish playboy Motley Hunter (Edward Martindel). Just as the audience is primed for a showdown between Fosdick and Hunter, the latter timidly excuses himself and leaves the room. The wind taken out of his sails, Fosdick has no choice but to forgive his wife and escort her home. The unexpectedly low-key climax is par for the course for this genteel romantic comedy, in which the characters behave like human beings rather than refugees from a French farce.
