There are Two Santas
11 June 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This Charley Chase two-reel comedy from his peak period is a bit slow to get off the mark. Charley wants to buy wife Eugenia Gilbert an eighty-dollar watch for Christmas, but landlord Noah Young wants his $80 of rent money. The first half of the movie is taken up with those issues with some good but not amazing gags tossed in, along with Fred Kelsey as a store detective.

It's in the second reel, when Charley and Noah play dueling Santas, that this becomes a much better than average short comedy and that's just about right. You don't want the jokes and pace to peak too early.

This Christmas-themed comedy was released, unsurprisingly, on December 12, just in time to hit the first-run houses for the Christmas seasons. One can only hope the title didn't disillusion any moppets.
