Her Peignoir

Her Peignoir

Director: Charles Pitt

Year: 1917

Plot: Ami Simple and his wife never tire of telling their neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Gay, of their wonderfully happy and eugenic marriage. One morning Mrs. Simple, struck by a stunning new peignoir in Vogue, decides to have one and goes at once to her dressmaker. Ami returns home to lunch and cannot get in. With the aid of Gay he breaks in through the window and finds a note on the table which reads: "Have gone to have my peignoir cut out. Janice." Horrified at the terrible news, Ami calls up the hospital and is told that Mrs. Simple is undergoing ether. Rushing to the hospital he bends over the bed and finds the patient is another Mrs. Simple. He shows the note to the superintendent, who calls in several doctors for discussion. After trying in vain to discover from their medical books what a peignoir is, they conclude it is some terrible new disease and assure Simple that his wife has probably gone to a specialist. Overcome, Simple enters a saloon and manages to take the edge off his sorrow. Meanwhile Janice returns and Mrs. Gay asks her if the operation was successful. Explanations follow and Janice unwraps a bundle and shows what a peignoir is. Simple wends a crooked path home and when he, too, is told what a peignoir is he flops to the floor.—Moving Picture World, September 1, 1917
