Beauty Is In The Parlor Of The Beholder
2 May 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

It's spring, and all the men of Our Gang have love on their minds. When they overhear the female cohort speaking of their physical imperfections, they are downhearted at first. The they sneak into William Gillespie's beauty parlor, where they try out the latest concoctions and devices, if not, alas, to their hearts' content, in this funny short.

In this one they are aided by Florence Lee. The rascals may have had their problems with adults, but old people were frequently their allies; they too, knew the scorn of the world. Miss Lee had been born in the South in 1864. Her best known role was as the Blind Girl's Grandmother in Chaplin's CITY LIGHTS, but she was a veteran actor and screenwriter, with a career in the movies that stretched from 1911 through her death in 1933.
