Audience Reviews for The Adventurer
Much hilarious! Marvelous! Plenty of laughs! This Charlie Chaplin silent film becomes my number one and all-the-time favourite I always watch several times. Chaplin out-kicks his proficient adversary in an encounter and as usual performs mirth-provoking acrobatic stunts - very clever!
"The Adventurer" has a misleading title ("The Convict" would be better), but it's a fun, entertaining short. Chaplin escapes from prison and falls into high society after rescuing some upper-crust folks who fall off a beach pier. He spends the rest of the film stealing drinks, kicking rivals and dodging suspicion. Did Chaplin invent the familiar gag where someone temporarily "hides" by putting a lampshade over his head and standing rigid?
