a tough to rate curio
3 May 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Technically, this is an exceptionally well-made Chaplin film--with great special effects and makeup. However, it really isn't a Chaplin short but a short advertisement for the theaters in order to sell Liberty Bonds for WWI. As an advertising and propaganda piece, it achieves it goals very well and was fun to watch but how can you really rate something like this on IMDb? You can't really stack this up against any of Chaplin's other shorts and it must be seen as a unique curio.

FYI--this is an included DVD extra from Warner Brother's Chaplin Collection. This is an exceptional set covering nearly all his full-length films and his later (and in my opinion, better-made) shorts. A great set for fans of silent comedy or an exceptional way to learn more about this comic genius.
