Charlie Chaplin United States, 1916

Slappy McGee's rating of the film One A.M.

Solid Chaplin effort. Great slapstick and gags throughout. Really solid performance. A drunk gets dropped off at his house and he makes numerous attempts to get out of the taxi, get in his house, and battles the furniture and decorations in his home as he tries to get upstairs to go to bed. Very simple concept full of great physical comedy. Chaplin throws his body around with great abandon. Great stuff.
