Storyline

Charlie works on a farm from 4am to late at night. He gets his food on the run (milking a cow into his coffee, holding an chicken over the frying pan to get fried eggs). He loves the neighbor's daughter Edna but is disliked by her father. He rides a cow into a stream and is kicked off. Unconscious, he dreams of a nymph dance. Back in reality a city slicker is hurt in a car crash and is being cared for by Edna. When Charlie is rejected after attempting to imitate the slicker, the result is ambiguous--either tragic or a happy ending. Critics have long argued as to whether the final scene is real or a dream.

Moments that stick out in the Chaplin canon
22 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although not a success when it was released in 1919, scenes to look out for in his third film for First National Pictures is Chaplin again showing off his stunt skills by riding rampaging cows, and the classic scene involving "Blind Man's Buff', his brother 'Willie', and a car. The dream scene featuring the prepubescent girls foreshadows Chaplin's own private (for now) daemons. I deeply appreciated the thrill of Glen David Gold's Carter Beats the Devil, and his follow up was titled Sunnyside which is about I should say that the book is about Chaplin, following several story lines all looping back, thematically, to that change in character that you witness in "A Day's Pleasure," the first section. tracesofevil.blogspot.com
