Max, who usually played a young Parisian boulevardier, is newly married. He doesn't wish to leave his bride behind when forced to go on a men-only vacation, so he sticks her in a suitcase and off they go!
This is one of the best Max Linder shorts I have seen, full of angst and bumping along, but what makes it even better is that his movements and reactions are exactly like Charlie Chaplin's. Rather, one should say that Chaplin seems to have studied this movie extensively in working on his movie character, because this Linder short came out a year before Chaplin went before the camera.
Chaplin always acknowledged his debt -- well, usually -- to the man he called 'The Professor' and in this one we can see precisely what Chaplin learned.
