His Trysting Place

USA, 1914 (MIFF 1990, Fiction)

Director: Charles Chaplin

This delightful Charles Chaplin film made for Keystone is a genuine "belly-laugh".

As with most comedies, it is based on a misunderstanding. Charlie has lunch in a bar and inadvertently mixes up his coat with someone else's.

This film set a context for Sidewalk Stories, a modern silent film which screens on the same programme.
