Between Showers, starring Charlie Chaplin

Between Showers (1914) starring Charlie Chaplin, Ford Sterling, Chester Conklin

In this early Charlie Chaplin film, Charlie competes with another man (Ford Sterling, at the time a major comedy film star) in trying to help a pretty young lady cross a muddy street.   The two rivals fight over various items in their struggle to be first to help the lady, including a wooden plank and Sterling’s umbrella.

Chester Conklin also makes an appearance as a policeman.  Between Showers is a very slapstick film, standard Keystone fare.  It has little to recommend it beyond its’ historical value as an early Charlie Chaplin film.
