|Caught in the Rain
This early Charles Chaplin comedy is another of the flirting-in-the-park escapades that punctuated his work at the Keystone studio in 1914. Chaplin is ably supported by Mack Swain and Alice Davenport.
Drunken and flirting Charlie is rebuffed by a woman and her irate husband in the park. Back at their hotel, Charlie stumbles into the couple again causing them his usual Keystone distress.
