CGiii Comment

Early Chaplin with Mrs Stout in drag...funny for those who like slapstick and arse-kicking.
 

Watch...

 

The(ir) Blurb...

After amusements working in a restaurant, Charlie uses his lunch break to go roller skating. Mr. Stout makes advances toward the unwilling Edna (whose father and Mrs. Stout had earlier carried on in the restaurant). After a roller skate ballet, Charlie (now as Sir Cecil Seltzer) is invited to a party at Edna's. All the "couples", including a new partner for Mr. Stout. show up.
