Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp character works a day job as a bricklayer. At night, he attempts to spend his pay the way he wants to—at the saloon—but his wife has something to say about that!
The working man's daily grind, Chaplin-style. Bonus points for a charming use of running the film stock in reverse.
The gag with the lift can be seen in M. Hulot's Holiday in a different form: this time with a paint can and the sea.
Sous l'humour et le comique de ce court métrage se cache finalement beaucoup de pessimisme et d'amertume, comme d'ailleurs pour maintes réalisations du grand metteur en scène ..... www.cinefiches.com
Never get drunk!
★★★★ underpaid on his overtime.
sad to know that Chaplin's last short film.
+ 1 Star for the Lift sequence. .. ^^
