                 ————————————————————————————————————

Für den nötigen Humor ist auch reichlich gesorgt. Max Linder und Jane Renouardt brillieren als junges Ehepaar in einer niedlichen Episode: Eifersucht, in welcher diese oft so verhängnisvolle Leidenschaft künstlich erregt wird, um etwas verglimmende Gattenliebe neu anzufachen - ein Hilfsmittel von bestem Erfolg. (Erste Internationale Film-Zeitung, 30.11.1912)

                 ————————————————————————————————————

Max becomes a benedict, and we are introduced to him and his charming bride, Jane, in the first hours of their honeymoon. After the honeymoon is over, Jane frets so much over Max's undemonstrativeness that she consults  the  family  doctor, to whom she pours out her grievance. This worthy gives her a prescription, which has, in similar cases, been the means of quickening a flagging affection. Jane must make herself look pretty again, have mysterious appointments, and pretend to have a lover - in short, make Max jealous. Jane, delighted with the plan, proceeds to put it into execution. Max's jealousy is thoroughly aroused. The next day Max finds a note on the floor (carefully placed there by Jane) in which the writer plans to meet his wife that evening, adding that he will enter by the window. Jane has arrayed herself in some of her husband's clothes, and when Max looks through the keyhole into his wife's room, he sees a stranger enter, and ostensibly make love to his wife. He bursts into the room, and seizing a pair of swords, hands one to his betrayer, and insists on having his honour vindicated on the spot. Jane takes the sword, and after a few thrusts she discloses her identity. Max embraces her affectionately. (The Bioscope, Dec. 5, 1912)

                 ————————————————————————————————————

Après une lune de miel pleine de douceur, Max, certain désormais de l’amour de Jane, sa femme, toujours heureux, mais un peu calmé, commence à reprendre ses chères habitudes d’antan: lecture de son journal, sorties, séances prolongées au café, etc. Jane, se croyant délaissée, se désole et va consulter son vieux docteur et ami. Celui-ci, en homme d’expérience, lui rédige l’ordonnance suivante: “mettre du bleu aux yeux, du rouge aux lèvres; se parfumer avec un parfum très fort; partir de bonne heure, rentrer tard; exciter la jalousie par un faux rendez-vous.” Jane exécute fidèlement ce programme et a la joie de voir Max lui revenir, plus amoureux que jamais. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)
