Becoming Charley Chase

Rent Jumpers, The (1915)

*** (out of 4)

Charley Chase plays a man who steals his roommates (Fritz Schade) money-rich wallet and takes his girlfriend (Mae Busch) out for a night of fancy dining. After dinner the man realizes that he's stolen the wrong wallet and this one here is empty. Here's another winner from Keystone and once again they take a story that we've seen before (even in 1915) and they do wonders with it thanks to a great cast and some perfect comedy timing. Chase is at the top of his (early) game here and really delivers a funny performance especially in some early scenes where he's trying to get around his girlfriend's father who obviously doesn't like him. He also has some great chemistry with Schade and their early banter in their apartment is very good and it works later on in the film as well. Schade gets to display some of his physical humor as well with a slip into the bathtub. Busch also comes across very well here as she does a good job playing the silly daughter who finds herself in a jam. For the most part the humor comes from the actors timing to all the situations and we get plenty of good laughs. One of the highlights of the film happens when Schade bursts in on the dinner trying to find his wallet not knowing of the mistake that has been made.
