Audience Reviews for One A.M. (Solo)

Charlie, by himself, created all the action that was necessary to produce the laughs for which he became noted, and there was no doubt that this was the most exacting role the comedian had ever essayed.

A solo routine from Chaplin. I had originally seen this back in high school when I did a history report on Chaplin. Then the Cleveland Institute of Art's Cinematheque had a night of five short silents by comedy greats and I was able to see this again. Chaplin isn't the little tramp in this one. He's a rich game hunter coming home a little tipsy at one a.m. Chaplin shows his athleticism in the gags. The rugs are a little slick on the floor. The table keeps his night cap (although he's already drank plenty) out of his reach. The stairs prove to be as difficult to climb as Mount Everest in his condition. A clock pendulum boxes him out a few times. And his fold out bed gives him the wrestling match of a life time. Great stuff!

Chaplin's fourth film is raw and rather dull. The gags are obvious and his drunk character just doesn't come off natural. Some gags went on for a bit to long (the spinning table) and others just seemed out of place. Yet for such an early film One A.M. deserves recognition.
