No, the title character in this Edison one-reeler is not married to a ship. In maritime language, a "ship's husband" was the seaman who took charge of a ship while it was in port. The story focuses on just such a "husband," who finds himself embroiled in the evil schemes of a jealous sailor. The hero saves the ship from destruction and ends up being lauded as a hero. Better directed than most Edison films of the period, The Ship's Husband contained several exciting scenes in and around the water. The reviewer for Variety diluted the film's excitement somewhat by tipping off the happy ending.
