The Serial Novel
8 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Released from prison, Chaplin falls back into crime by breaking into Edna Purviance's house who takes a fancy to him and tells the police that he is her husband. Chaplin responds to this by kicking them out of the house and dropping cigarette ash in one of their hands.

His two reelers have the same format as the serial novel, 'Vanity Fair'. Mundane and monotonous.
