Mildly Amusing
27 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This early Charlie Chaplin short feature is mildly amusing, with a small touch of humanity. Charlie is an artist who loses his girl to a rich man who came to have his portrait painted. Then, in a bar, Charlie bemoans what has happened. There isn't too much comedy, just a few small laughs. Charlie does make us sympathize a little with the artist. It's worth watching once for anyone who likes Chaplin (as is almost anything that he did), but it's not up to the standard of most of his films.
