Clever, And Feminist
9 June 2016 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Mabel (Mabel Normand) is engaged to Harry (Harry McCoy), the boss's son. The boss has an eye for Mabel too, in this gender-bending comedy of errors and mistaken identities.

Some have said this film is not that great, but okay "for the time". Actually, I think it is rather good. The doppelganger aspect, the costume changes, the "gender-bending"... this has quite a few interesting and innovative ideas.

What I find most interesting is the "feminist" aspect. Mabel Norman not only stars, but writes and directs. She is not very well known today, or for those who do know her, she is often seen as second fiddle to Charlie Chaplin. This film proves she is more than that... she was a talented artist in her own right.
