Storyline

Drunk as a skunk, Charlie arrives home by taxi after a wild night out, only to realise that he has lost his key. Now, as an open window becomes the entrance, practically every single item or piece of furniture--including a possessed Murphy bed--becomes a formidable and insurmountable obstacle standing in his way, and working against him. Can't a man find peace at 1 o'clock in the morning? Written by Nick Riganas

Gorgeous in its simplicity.
8 October 2019 | by eminklSee all my reviews

Chaplin plays at one a.m. a wealthy man coming home. After a drinking night, he finds an obstacle in his way to getting to bed. Chaplin performs a hilarious one-man show in this famous slapstick short, showing not only his comedy ability but also his incredible creativity in his interaction with each prop and inch of the set. Gorgeous in its simplicity.
