Storyline

There is no real plot in this little short, who was made only as a wedding present for Lord and Lady Mountbatten. The main plot line is that Lady Mountbatten has a valuable pearl necklace, which a very large number of crooks wants to steal. Charlie Chaplin, even though he is wearing his tramp costume, is called to hunt the crooks, which he does with a wooden hammer, which appears suddenly in his hand. Then the unconscious crooks are all lined up on the lawn, close to Jackie Coogan, who was, at the beginning of the film, hidden there under a blanket, for no apparent reason whatsoever!!

Hilarious but not brilliant
30 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't usually write comments on IMDb but I think I'm going to start. I needed to say something for this one because the comments were so negative and I don't know why. I laughed and laughed at this little short. It isn't logical and it doesn't have a straightforward storyline; it's just more of a series of funny images and situations. It's just Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Coogan fooling around one day with some friends. To be completely honest, that sounds very entertaining to me. And it was. Charlie as the tramp is hilarious (as always); he does some funny stuff with a cane, a hammer and his hat. The tramp's entrance into this film made me laugh my butt off, and so did the ending. The only bad thing is that the beginning is a bit slow but as soon as the Tramp makes his entrance the film really picks up.
