Charles Chaplin and Chester Conklin are rivals in the attention of any woman they happen to see together, whether it be their landlady or an attractive woman at the local park. Disheartened by his failure with women, Charlie attempts suicide by jumping into a lake. A cop prevents him and he quickly galvanizes himself into action in his sexual rivalry with Chester. Chester, enjoying the attention of two ladies, is knocked cold by Charlie and follows the two women to a nickelodeon. Charlie enjoys himself seated between the two women but Chester and another man send him flying through the movie screen.

Epic ending. Full of meaning.
The slapstick humor is a little less refined than what I normally expect to see from Chaplin, but the taste in humor, ingenuity and raw wit still piques my interest in a way only Mr. Chaplin can do.
Brilliant. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who worked so hard to bring these masterpieces to us in 2012. Thanks to all of you.
