"Hours before his departure for the Spanish-American War, Captain John Carey, a career naval officer, invites his wife and four children to a picnic near Newport, Rhode Island. While driving in the country, the Careys, who are renting a nearby furnished house, discover an abandoned mansion and stop to investigate it. Enchanted by the once-splendid house, daughter Nancy fantasizes with her sister Kitty about having the money to buy the property. Several months later, during a birthday dinner given in Captain Carey's honor, Mrs. Carey receives word that her husband has been killed. To make ends meet on her husband's pension, Mrs. Carey takes work at a factory and is seriously injured on the job. In spite of offers from their rich aunt Bertha, the Carey children vow to find a way to restore their mother's health while staying together as a family. Consequently, when Nancy is out driving with Ralph Thurston, a Latin teacher with whom both she and Kitty are infatuated, she comes up with a scheme whereby the family will lease the still-empty mansion for a small yearly fee, restore and furnish it using her father's life insurance money, and transform it into a profitable boardinghouse for Ralph and his fellow teachers. With help from the Pophams, the local real estate agents and general store owners, the Careys turn the dilapidated mansion into an inviting residence. Unknown to them, however, Pauline Fuller and her henpecked husband Clarence are plotting with the mansion's Boston landlord, Thomas Hamilton, Sr., to buy the house for themselves. Before the Careys are able to open their doors to the boarders, they are visited by Dr. Tom Hamilton, Jr., who informs them that they must vacate the premises within two weeks. That same day, however, three-year-old Peter Carey falls ill, and Tom volunteers to treat him. After Tom saves Peter's life, he pledges to prevent the Fullers from moving in and, with the help of the Carey children, terrifies the Fullers into leaving by 'haunting' the house with manufactured ghosts. Impressed by Tom's kindness, Nancy, who previously had lost Ralph to Kitty, agrees with her siblings that a doctor would be a good addition to the Carey family"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"After many years at sea, Captain Zenas Henry Brewster, a crusty Cape Cod fisherman, sells his boat and settles down in Wilton Junction. Soon bored with life on land, however, he drops in on his neighbor, spinster Abbie Howland, and proposes to her for the fifteenth time in as many years. Because of his fiery temper, Abbie again rejects him, but offers to work as his daytime housekeeper, and after an intense cleaning, Zenas' old house is transformed into a cozy home. In spite of Abbie's admonishments, Zenas opens his door to his raggedy seamates, Captain Jeremiah Taylor and Captain Ben, who quickly become part of Abbie's tidy, well-fed household. Later, during a brutal storm, the captains rescue a shipwrecked girl, Susan Ann, the teenaged daughter of the doomed ship's skipper. Zenas adopts Susan Ann as his own and worries when she becomes involved with Jimmy Howell, the son of a Boston millionaire. Prejudiced against Jimmy because he is 'summer folk, ' Zenas discourages Susan Ann from seeing him until he makes a public proposal of marriage. Abbie, meanwhile, frets over Zenas' dwindling finances and pushes him to buy the cranberry bog that he has been talking about for months. Cajoled by a salesman, Zenas uses all of his savings and takes a mortgage on his house to buy the land, which turns out to be a worthless swamp. Broke, he is then forced to take a job as a second mate on an old freighter. When the freighter's boiler explodes off the Mexican coast, Zenas saves twelve of his seamates, but is badly injured during the rescue. Hospitalized for months, Zenas is unaware of the sacrifices that Abbie and the others make to pay his medical bills. Jimmy, who has read about Zenas' heroism, buys the swamp as part of an elaborate development plan and prevents the foreclosing of Zenas' house. When Zenas finally returns, he receives a hero's welcome and, after learning of Jimmy's deed, gives Susan Ann his blessing"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"After returning to his Greenland village with a slain polar bear, the great Eskimo hunter Aigo chooses Guninana as his wife, and the newlyweds live together happily until two British explorers, Sir Basil Pemberton and his assistant, Michael, arrive in the village. As soon as the white men impress Aigo with a few modern innovations, they ask him to join their expedition to capture live polar bears for the London Zoo. Tempted by a photograph of Sir Basil's smiling daughter Joan, the naive Aigo agrees to participate in the gruelling expedition and says goodbye to a pregnant Guninana. While on board Sir Basil's ship, Aigo learns English and is instructed in the ways of 'civilized' conduct. Soon after their arrival in the far north, Aigo builds a clever trap and, using himself as bait, captures an enormous polar bear, who mauls Aigo's leg in the process. Before he will allow the ship's doctor to operate on his leg, Aigo insists on gazing at Joan's photograph. Later, while listening to Joan send her father greetings during a Christmas radio broadcast from London, Aigo faints in a trance. When asked about his fainting spell, Aigo explains that, while making a spiritual voyage, he had seen Joan in London, and that earlier, her spirit had helped him to catch the polar bear. Aigo then asks Sir Basil to take him to London to meet Joan in person as payment for his work. In London, Joan, repulsed by his rough manners, remains cool toward Aigo until Sir Basil explains Aigo's belief that she is his old 'spiritual' friend. As a favor to her father, Joan agrees to humor Aigo and begins a patronizing flirtation with him. Eventually, Aigo succumbs to an infection and, while recuperating, catches Joan and her boyfriend embracing. Devastated by his discovery, Aigo collapses and is saved only by Joan's reassurances that his vision was a bad dream. Later, however, Joan gives Aigo a glass of whiskey, and suddenly intoxicated, he makes a forceful sexual advance. In her fury, Joan reveals her deception to Aigo, who is then returned to Greenland. There, Aigo, disillusioned and rejected, wanders into a blizzard and is found nearly frozen by his fellow villagers. Finally, Aigo is reborn by the sight of his young son and by the excitement of a village hunt"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

There Jasper, a notorious ladies man, works his charm on McGowd's young European wife Norma, who eagerly reciprocates his affections, and nine months later, Roger McGowd is born. Ten years later, McGowd orders Jasper and his sickly son Andrew to his house and accuses Jasper of being Roger's father. Fired from his motorman job, Jasper returns to Jenny with plans for a new life elsewhere, but Jenny, always suspicious of her husband, announces that Andrew and she are not going with him. That night, however, Jasper sneaks out with Andrew and travels to Atlantic City, where he is befriended by Madame Talma, an alcoholic astrologer.
