Caught in the RainâCharlie Chaplin short film originally released May 4, 1914
Caught in the Rain is another early Charlie Chaplin film from Keystone Studios, where the character of Charlie the little tramp isnât quite what weâre used to from his later work. Slightly tipsy, Charlie tries to make time with Mabel Normandâs character, unaware that sheâs married, leading to his being beaten up by her husband, Mack Swain. Later that night in the hotel where heâs staying, a sleepwalking Mabel comes into his room, and Charlie tries to get her back into her own room while avoiding her prowling husband, ending up with the married couple happily reunited, but with poor Charlie trapped out on a window ledge in a downpourâhence the title.
