Brief Synopsis – Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp escapes prison, save a women and causes trouble wherever he goes.
My Take on it – In my quest to try and expand my knowledge of Chaplin movies, I decided to give this one a try.
Once again we get the typical Chaplin style slapstick that is very funny no matter how many times you watch it.
My favorite routines in this one are the lampshade and the sliding doors antics.
Both are now considered classic Chaplin “moves” but to see the original usage is still a pleasure.
This is only 23 minutes long, but we still get a nice short film that is filled with laughs and chuckles by the antics of the lovable Charlie Chaplin who always knew how to tickle out funny bone (eve nearly a Century later).
Bottom Line – Another fun Chaplin movie that captures his style of slapstick comedy so well. Short but sweet. Loved the lampshade scene and the sliding doors because they are hilariously done. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The chauffeur was played by Toraichi Kono, who was Charles Chaplin’s own butler, chauffeur, secretary, and bodyguard from 1916 to 1934. (From IMDB)
