His Uncle's Wives1913

  • 3.0
An artist unexpectedly inherits six wives who come to him from his uncle in Constantinople. His wife makes serious objections, and he finally packs them off to join a theatrical troupe, and happiness is restored. This simple situation comedy enjoys opulent sets of the home of an already-married New York City painter who inherits a harem, then finds a way to dispose of them. Though silly, the premise could fill a 2-hour movie today, plus sequels. Though the scenarist is unrecorded, it is likely Lloyd F. Lonergan who loved the device of inheritance to drive the plot.
