A Busy DayâCharlie Chaplin originally released May 7, 1914
Definitely not playing his famous Charlie the Little Tramp character, A Busy Day has Charlie Chaplin in drag, playing the jealous wife of a philandering husband (played by Chaplin regular actor Mack Swain), who inadvertently interrupts a movie being filmed, knocking over Mack Sennett and Billy Gilbert in the process. Finally, the husband pushes Charlie (or would it be Charlotte?) off a pier, falling into a harbor. A very … different … Charlie Chaplin film, to say the least.
