Melies' Mr. and Mrs. Duff was distributed on the same reel as The Count's Wooing. An exercise in down-and-dirty slapstick, the film establishes early on that Mr. Duff lives in mortal terror of his overbearing spouse. Deciding to walk out on her, Duff is struck by a car and brought back home, where he endures even more abuse from the belligerent Mrs. Duff. Desperately, he asks his father to come to his rescue, advising the old man to bring a shotgun along. The film ends as both Mr. Duff and his father are beaten senseless by Mrs. Duff, who has recently taken up boxing for just such an occasion.
