A Tumultuous Honeymoon was a surprisingly pedestrian effort from the usually innovative Melies film factory. Already ticked off because his daughter wants to elope, a cantankerous farmer vents his spleen on an unfortunate tramp. Escaping the farmer's wrath, the tramps steals a pile of clothes, only to discover that they've been abandoned due to smallpox. Reduced to wearing a barrel, the tramp has an inspiration when he passes a clothesline full of women's clothing. All this leads to a slapstick wedding sequence, with the tramp, wearing women's apparel, being mistaken for the farmer's eloping daughter.
