Wife and Auto Trouble is a 1916 American film directed by Dell Henderson and Mack Sennett. It was made by the "Tri-Stone Film Company", an evolution of "Keystone Triangle" which in turn evolved from the famous Keystone Film Company.
A new husband shares a house with his wife and mother-in-law and a second man (listed as a brother-in-law). The first scene shows favoritism at the breakfast table to the second man, but whilst he reads his paper the table is rotated to ensure a good cup of coffee for the husband.
At work the husband chats up his secretary Mae Busch and is discovered by the second male who calls his mother-in-law. A car bought for the secretary is given to the wife as a gift to stall her, but the secretary demands it back. Action moves to a private booth in a restaurant/dance hall where a similar evasion act ensues.
A car chase ensues followed by the "Tri-Stone Kops" an evolution from the earlier Keystone Kops.
