Charlie Chaplin United States, 1921

Renton47's rating of the film The Idle Class

You can imagine Chaplin turning the conceit into a feature, Prince and the Pauper style. As the rich drunk he provides the film's funniest sight joke (from crying to mixing the drink) and the golf sequence is a decent set piece, but when the two identities meet there isn't so much material to sustain it (I was hoping people DIDN'T think they looked alike).
