Too Many Husbands (1914)
- Summaries (2)
A young man in love with his uncle's ward can't convince his uncle that he's fit to marry her, and schemes to continue seeing her anyway. The uncle, however, is determined to see that his nephew gets nowhere near the girl.
After refusing Arthur Crane, his nephew, the hand of his ward, Dorothy, uncle "tenderly" throws Crane downstairs and insists Dorothy marry his secretary, Chauncey Chilton. She flatly refuses. Chauncey is in reality a crook with a soubriquet of "Double Cross Flynn." Arthur, residing with the Browns, in New York, receives word of Dorothy's engagement to Chilton. He angrily writes to Dorothy and his uncle that he has been married a year and sends a photo of Mrs. Brown as his wife. Uncle delightedly telegraphs he is coming with Dorothy and Chilton to visit him. Arthur confesses to the Browns, begging their consent to introduce Mrs. Brown as his wife, and her husband as a boarder, to which they agree. Bauer, a detective, who is on Double Cross's trail, boards with the family. Uncle arrives and insists on christening Brown's baby "Thaddeus," nearly causing a riot. Arthur temporarily forgets he is "married" and makes love to Dorothy. Brown's mother-in-law arrives and makes things hum. Arthur desperately locks Crane in his room until after the christening, when Uncle learns the baby's name is "Marguerite." Mrs. Brown becomes hysterical. Uncle sees her husband comforting her, and tells Arthur his wife is making love to one of the boarders. Chauncey witnesses a love scene between Arthur and Dorothy and tells Uncle. Uncle indignantly tells mother-in-law that the owner of the house was found making love to his ward. Mother drags the Browns into the room and Uncle naturally denies he accused Brown, as he thinks Arthur is the husband and owner. During the mix-up Bauer suddenly identifies and arrests Chilton. In the excitement, the nephew and ward disappear. Uncle receives word they are married and when they return, after explanations all around, Uncle gives them his blessing.
