Between Showers – Charlie Chaplin the Little Tramp trying (and failing) to help a pretty girl across a flooding street

In this early Charlie Chaplin film, Charlie competes with another man (Ford Sterling, at the time a major comedy film star) in trying to help a pretty young lady cross a muddy street.   The two rivals fight over various items in their struggle to be first to help the lady, including a wooden plank and Sterling’s umbrella.   It’s a very slapstick film, standard Keystone fare, with little to recommend it beyond its’ historical value as an early Charlie Chaplin film.
