Angie (Emma Dunn) has been married to Captain Abe Rose (Henry Harmon) for decades. Now bad investments are forcing them out of their home. Angie must go live in an "old ladies' home," while Abe is relegated to the poor farm. But when the other 29 old ladies see how hard it is for the couple to part, they decide to disguise Abe and have him enter the home as "Old Lady 31." Abe, being the only male, gets the full brunt of the women's ministrations until he has a dream where, as Solomon, he prefers the company of a den of lions to his 1,000 wives. Eventually, some mining stock turns up that is worth a lot of money, and Angie and Abe can return to their old home. This comedy was based on the play by Rachel Crothers, and the two leads appeared in the original stage production.
