A Woman (1915)

US 26m, B&W, Silent
Director: Charlie Chaplin: Cast: Charlie Chaplin, Edna Purviance, Charles Inslee, Marta Golden, Leo White

Following a confrontation in the park with a womanizing husband, Charlie is befriended by the man’s wife and daughter, who invite him home for dinner. To the amusement of the daughter, Charlie disguises himself as a woman and flirts with her father and his friend. Eventually discovering the deception, the requisite arse kicking and general mayhem ensue. While not the funniest of Chaplin’s early comedy shorts, it’s worth a look just to see Charlie as a mischievous gal (Klaus Ming March 2019).
