A Temperamental Husband (1912)Comedy, Short · 11 November 1912
Brown is temperamental, and jealous. He goes to business and tips the maid to watch his wife. In his absence his wife's brother calls, whom he has never seen. The maid, spying, sees the affectionate greeting of the brother and sister, and runs to town to tell Brown. Mrs. Brown has turned away an evil-looking tramp, and when her little girl does not respond to her calls, she jumps at the conclusion that the little one has been kidnapped, and calls the police, who make haste to reach the Brown home on bicycles. In the meantime, however, the child returns home. After many difficulties Brown gets to his house, and, peeping through the window sees his wife sitting on her brother's lap. Drawing a revolver, he is about to shoot the unknown man when the police arrive. In fear and trembling they approach Brown, who has picked up his little girl, and whom they think is the kidnapper. Brown is captured and beaten unconscious with clubs. When he comes to he sees his wife and her brother standing over him and makes a dash for the brother. Explanations are quickly made, and he then turns upon the police and gives them a dose of the same medicine they gave him.
