Beautiful, interesting, incredible cinema.
Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp character works a day job as a bricklayer. At night, he attempts to spend his pay the way he wants to—at the saloon—but his wife has something to say about that!
The working man's daily grind, Chaplin-style. Bonus points for a charming use of running the film stock in reverse.
Sous l'humour et le comique de ce court métrage se cache finalement beaucoup de pessimisme et d'amertume, comme d'ailleurs pour maintes réalisations du grand metteur en scène ..... www.cinefiches.com
The gag with the lift can be seen in M. Hulot's Holiday in a different form: this time with a paint can and the sea.
A solid late Chaplin short. Funny but not one of his most memorable. The tram/train sequence was great.
Never get drunk!
★★★★ underpaid on his overtime.
sad to know that Chaplin's last short film.
