January 1, 1915
Chaplin's second film for Essanay was the first of five films shot in and around the company's Niles studio in northern California. The plot is a variation of the teaming of Chaplin and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle in the Keystone film The Rounders, this time paired with Ben Turpin, with whom Chaplin forms an excellent comedy partnership. In the film Chaplin and Turpin are drunks about the town, starting at a cafe and ending in a risque hotel room mix-up with a pretty girl, similar to what Chaplin had already done at Keystone in Caught in the Rain, yet this time with Edna Purviance in her first film for Chaplin.
