A Busy Day (1914)

A Busy Day—Charlie Chaplin originally released May 7, 1914

A Busy Day - Charlie Chaplin in dragDefinitely 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.
