Birds of a Feather (1911)
Experience has taught many a man that it is always safe and sane to let his wife make her own purchases. Mr. Sutherland did not know this, so he thought he would surprise his wife by sending home a very becoming hat and dress, which he thought would suit her style. Mrs. Sutherland was very much disappointed and displeased with her husband's choice, and she immediately calls up a dealer in misfit gowns, disposes of her husband's selection and says she will spend the money for clothing more suited to her liking. Agnes Bonner, a young stenographer, whose means are rather limited, has received an invitation from her beau to go out to dinner. She is sadly in need of a suitable dress for the occasion, and, after looking over her finances, decides to call on Miss Helen, the dealer in misfit garments to see if she can secure something that will make her presentable in Dick's company. She picks out the very dress and hat which Mrs. Sutherland has sold, meets Dick, and arm in arm they walk proudly down the street. Mr. Sutherland comes along and recognizes the clothing he bought for his wife, and immediately comes to the conclusion that it is she in company with a strange man. He secures a revolver and follows them surreptitiously from place to place till he sees them go to a swell restaurant where they seat themselves at a table and order an extravagant dinner. His anger and jealousy are aroused beyond all endurance. He rushes headlong into the dining room, waving his revolver, demanding an explanation. When Agnes turns around and confronts him, he is so astounded at his horrible mistake and so paralyzed with chagrin he cannot explain himself; he is summarily kicked from the premises, a sadder and a wiser man.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
