Caught in the Rain was an interesting, if not very funny, early directorial effort from Charlie Chaplin
22 June 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just caught this, one of the earliest films directed by star Charlie Chaplin, on a DVD collection called "American Slapstick". In this one, The Tramp runs afoul of a married couple, first at a park bench, and then at a hotel. The wife of this couple turns out to be a sleepwalker. Also, The Tramp is drunk during much of this. That's all I'll say except while I found much amusing in the beginning and I liked Charlie's constant slipping down the stairs nearly every time he tries to go up them, it just lost steam after that for me. Good thing he'd get much better later on. Oh, and there's also a man whose foot is heavily bandaged and that Chaplin keeps stepping on that was also good for a few laughs. So on that note, Caught in the Rain is worth a look.
