Miss Charles Chaplin
20 February 2001 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

The king of comedy Charles Chaplin is hilarious in this 1915 silent short comedy.Once again Charlie gets in trouble.He is chased by two men and they go in a house.Chaplin goes upstairs as a man and comes down as a woman.And the chasers find him very attractive.Edna Purviance finds this situation very amusing.Man as a woman has been seen very many times in movies and many times it's funny.Chape certainly proves it in this movie.Chaplin makes a perfect lady.This movie is 20 minutes of fun.A Woman is a very lovable comedy flick from the master.I recommend it for everybody who likes to see Chaplin as a woman.And this was made long before Tootsie.
