Storyline

Mr. Goodhusband is forced to hand over every cent of his salary to wifey. He is allowed fifty cents for spending, how generous. He meets some of his friends and they stick him for a large bar-bill, for which he gives an "I.O.U." He later plans to pay this by "losing" his wife's watch and having her advertise and offer a reward for its return. The scheme would have worked if his accomplice hadn't been disloyal.

It is original and very enjoyable
17 April 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There are two domestic comedies on this split reel. Like opposite sides of the same coin, they go very well together. The audience like both heartily. This one, in part, is the funnier; its true comedy made the audience howl and roar. Wifey isn't kind. Goodhusband gave up all his salary and she gave him fifty cents for spending money. He tried to treat the boys and with some difficulty got off by leaving the half dollar and an I.O.U. How he schemed to pay this off and failed to get the money out of wifey is the funny part. It is original and very enjoyable. The picture would have been better if it had ended more good-naturedly. - The Moving Picture World, October 7, 1911
