Du skal aere din hustru / Thou Shalt Honour Thy Wife / Master of the House (1925) DVD9
It's the story of a overbearing man named Viktor (Johannes Meyer) and his timid wife Ida (Astrid Holm, The Phantom Carriage). Ida does everything within her power to make her home a perfect place: she helps the kids with their homework, puts a great deal of work into the creation of every meal, cleans constantly, repairs the family's clothing, shines Viktor's shoes and generally spends her every waking moment attempting to keep the house in order. Even so, her efforts are generally unnoticed and unappreciated by Viktor, who complains about everything and charges Ida with laziness. Eventually, the family nanny (Mathilde Nielsen) and Ida's mother (Karen Nellemose) determine that enough is enough. They send Ida away for awhile, telling her that they have a scheme which will ensure that Viktor learns to appreciate his wife.
