Mr. and Mrs. Gussle are taking a day outing together at a park. Henpecked Mr. Gussle just wants to go somewhere quiet and have a drink, but Mrs. Gussle will have none of that. Instead they get into one misadventure after another at the park, including with a a newspaper boy, with a couple in a motor car, and with a monkey at the zoo. But it's their encounter with a young picnicking couple that could cause the most problem, as Mr. Gussle is attracted to the woman and would rather spend the day with her than with his wife.

Gussle's Day of Rest (1915)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Gussle (Syd Chaplin) takes the wife (Phyllis Allen) he downright hates to the park where she's constantly hitting and screaming at him. While there Gussle tries to take a woman (Cecile Arnold) away from her boyfriend (Slim Summerville) and sure enough many fights come from it. This two-reeler from Keystone suffers from not having enough story or laughs for a 20-minute movie but I thought there were some funny moments scattered throughout it. While this certainly isn't a great movie or even a good one, I think what laughs are here makes it worth sitting through. One of the funniest moments happen early on when Gussle sees that his wife has money so he plays a little slide of hand trick on her to try and get it. There's also another very funny sequence where the wife is sleeping so Gussle decides to play a prank by putting a balloon in her mouth. I won't ruin what happens but it's quite funny. The four actors all are in fine form and especially Chaplin who has a very good comic timing here. I was also very happy with Allen who is such a hag that you can just picture and hear everything that's coming out of her mouth as she screams at the husband.
