Movie Info

The title of Charlie Chaplin's fifth comedy for Essanay refers to the popular term for a Model T Ford, a jitney. Its theme of impersonation was one Chaplin had used before in Caught in a Cabaret and Her Friend the Bandit, and would use again in The Count and other films. Chaplin's girlfriend Edna Purviance is about to be forced by her father to wed the wealthy Count de Ha-Ha (Leo White), whom neither has met. Chaplin, dropping by for a visit, stands below her bedroom window whistling for her.

Audience Reviews for A Jitney Elopement, (Charlie's Elopement), (Married in Haste )

One of Chaplin's better shorts, with him playing with identity and extreme parentage. The car chase sequence, considering the plot, was a little out of place, but it was a great attempt of putting comedy into physical extremes, and might be the closest he can get to a Keaton stunt sequence(Chaplin did not indulge much with over-the-top stunts).
