A Charlie Chaplin comedy. Originally silent, but was voiced-over in the 40’s and it works well. (I suppose silent-movie purists could turn off the sound if they are willing to give up the music as well).

Many scenes tricked loud guffaws from me. The tipping-house sequence is well-known. This is not a “meaning of life” kind of movie; it’s for when you need to be tickled for an hour and a half at the end of a hard week.

Must like physical comedy to enjoy Chaplin, of course.
