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!!

Nice and Friendly (1922)

** (out of 4)

There's not any real story to this 11-minute short that was directed by Charles Chaplin. The star made this as a gift to Lord and Lady Mountbatten for their wedding and it's probably doubtful that it was ever meant for public eyes. Considering this thing is basically just a home movie I'm not going to be overly harsh on it. If so then I'd have to say that nothing in it is very funny and this is perhaps the least funniest film Chaplin ever made. With that said, whereas he usually took a year or more to finish a film he probably got this one in the can within a day or two so needless to say it didn't get his full, masterful attention. For the most part it's a fair time killer that shown Chaplin as the Tramp messing around. What exactly he's doing I'm not certain of but it appears he's just fighting some other men for some reason. Jackie Coogan is also on hand as this was shot shortly after the success of THE KID. Film buffs might want to check this out but others should just stay clear.
