This is a padded-out, four-reel version of the two-reel short of the same title released in 1915, a spoof of the opera and film versions of Bizet's Carmen. Darn Hosiery, a Spanish officer, is led astray by the gypsy girl Carmen.

Charlie Chaplin and High Culture
8 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Chaplin takes this opportunity to take the mickey out of high culture in this satire on 'Carmen'. Only the upper classes could frequent the theatre before the 19th century. In the Victorian era, the middle classes joined them. In the 20th century, Chaplin took the mickey out of them as the chosen representative of the working classes.

Great film.
