Short (about 7 minutes) comedy featuring Charlie Chaplin as a movie fan on the set of a movie. Charlie is unable to see the difference between on screen acting and the real life, so when his favorite actress gets 'attacked' he tries to rescue her.
Then there's a great scene in which he lights his cigarette with his gun, but unfortunately he's starting a fire with it. The movie executives try to make the best of it by shooting another scene, until Charlie is standing in the way yet again...
Amusing little flick and a must-see for every Charlie fan, although not among his best or most important shorts from that era. 6/10.
