The Dance on Widow’s Row

Magnolia Ellis (Barabara Montgomery) is a woman who likes to plan. She and her neighbors on Fremont Street in Port Town, N.C. are lonely. They’re all widows — townfolk call the street “Widows’ Row”. So Magnolia invites three of her neighbors over to her home (gorgeously eclectic as designed by Felix Cochren), and four eligible men as well.

But there is a problem. Between them, the women have buried nine husbands and, while life insurance policies have made them all well off, there’s talk that they had a hand in causing all those funerals. Will the gentlemen be callers? Well, they are still “the finest courting ladies in the county,” so three of the four men eventually show up. – CurtainUp
