Madam's Fancies (1907)
4min · Comedy, Short · 21 December 1907
An indulgent husband takes his wife out because she is in bad humor, and resolves to be very good to her. She suddenly takes a fancy to a beautiful, expensive feather boa, and she takes possession while he pays for it, and when she takes him to a milliner he not only pays, but carries the boxes. At a florist's she adds a potted plant to his burden, and later a globe jar of live little fish. A dog is next, and so she goes on, hanging up her purchases on every available inch of space on her husband's person. When he is almost through he looks like a human van, but his wife fits a lamp shade over his hat, and caps the whole business by seating herself on a donkey to ride home on, while the overloaded husband walks behind. The entire cargo travels well, until, on reaching the house, he trips, and the whole load goes down in fragments.
