Mrs. Bunce grows suspicious of her husband's good-looking stenographer and Mrs. Brown sees visions in her mind of her husband entertaining chorus girls at wine suppers, a regular cut-up. She doesn't believe his stories of being detained at the office with his two faithful clerks.

Funny Bunnyfinch

When husband John Bunny is late to come home, wife Flora Finch imagines he is up to no good. Hoping to discover the worst, she disguises herself as a man and invites Bunny to a night on the town. Bunny realizes what's going on in this very funny example of the comedy couple's series of comedies, which you can watch in a fine tinted print on the Eye Institute site on YouTube.

There are some delightfully overplayed bits here. The debauchery that Finch imagines for her wandering husband is almost DeMillian in its decently-dressed decorum, and Miss Finch in evening clothes moves in a way that suggests Groucho Marx to me. Although Vitagraph's comedies in this period were more situation comedies than the better- remembered Keystones, this one will leave you in no doubt as to why they were so popular.
