Audience Member Chaplin plays a rich, upper-class gentleman. I didn't like it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Its worthwhile to see another few minutes of Charlie's wonderful stage presence, but overall another boring Keystone bit. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member In this movie Chaplin poisons himself after his girlfriend turns down his marriage proposal, only to get a letter right after saying that it's all a mistake and that she loves him anyway. It's pretty funny, actually. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Middling Chaplin. The most interesting thing about this is the narrative that actually makes sense up to the big ending set piece. Each piece fits together, the film is impressively and briskly edited, and Chaplin has a funny moment after he poisons himself. That said, it eventually devolves into a gigantic fight that seems to have little purpose but to portray people fighting and falling. Silly.
