A comic novel by Israel Zangwill resulted in 6 reels' worth of nonsense titled The Bachelor's Club. The hero is a henpecked husband whose worm turns when he inherits a fortune. Emboldened by his riches, hubby establishes a club for men who, like himself, have been browbeaten by their wives. This seminal version of Our Gang's He-Man Woman Haters' Club is doomed to failure thanks to a variety of humorous complications. The Bachelors' Club served as an early sampling of the comic expertise of Ernst Thesiger (Bride of Frankenstein).
