Be My Wife is a 1921 silent comedy film written, directed and starring Max Linder.
Max and Mary are in love, but Mary's Aunt Agatha dislikes Max, and instead prefers the unappealing Simon. So Max has to resort to a series of ruses to try to get Simon out of the way, and to be able to spend time with Mary.
Finally, Max comes up with a scheme that might allow him to prove to Aunt Agatha that he is more worthy than Simon.
