Gentlemen of Nerve is a pretty amusing early effort from director Chaplin
30 July 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Gentlemen of Nerve is one of Charlie Chaplin's earliest directing efforts. He stars in this with frequent co-star at this time Mabel Normand, herself a fine comedienne and director. They arrive at the races separately, she with a beau, he with a fellow who also hasn't any money. Mabel's beau keeps flirting with another lady while Charlie's temporary partner gets stuck in a fence hole trying to sneak in. That's all of the loose plot I'll mention and just say there are some funny slapstick scenes involving seltzer water, cops, race car propellers, Charlie's hat, Mabel's foot, and a few other stuff that you'd expect from a Keystone short. Mr. Chaplin and Ms. Normand are cute together and pretty amusing though most of the laughs are from Chaplin. Worth seeing for any silent comedy buffs out there.
