Written and directed by Charlie Chaplin.
|Mabel Normand is brilliant as the frazzled wife and mother.|
|“Here, play with this [a gun!]”|
|This is not the first film to show Charlie with a wife,
but it is the first to show him in a domestic situation.
|Charlie tries to shield himself from Mack Swain’s sloppy eating.|
|After a brawl with Mack Swain at the restaurant, Charlie accidently takes his coat,
and vice versa.
|Due to the coat mix-up, Mabel thinks Charlie is “trysting” with Phyllis Allen.|
|And you can imagine what Phyllis is thinking when she finds a baby bottle in her “husband’s” coat.|
|But all’s well that ends well…|
