Mother, Father and Daughter go to the park. The women dose off on a bench while the father plays a hide-and-seek game with a girl, blindfolded. Charlie leads him into a lake. Both dozing ladies on the bench fall for Charlie and invite him for dinner. The father returns home with a friend. Charlie rushes upstairs and dresses like a woman, shaving his moustache. Both men fall for Charlie.Written by

Some fragments were added from a nitrate print in the Blackhawk Collection preserved at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Intertitles have been reconstructed from an original and re-release 35mm print. See more »
This is one of the most interesting firsts film of Chaplin. In reality, the plot is similar to all the other short films of the great Charlot, with a narrative construction that's just a pretext to generate all kind of gags, mostly based on body and slapstick sketches. But here we can see also Chaplin act as a woman and his ability to understand all the movements and cliché of a comedian mask: if you have never seen this movie and you watch just the scene of woman version Chaplin, you can't recognize him, that looks also really cute! One of the proves of Chaplin acting abilities.
