Movie Info

Charlie Chaplin's eighth film for Lone Star/Mutual was also his last for 1916.

Classic Charlie Chaplin silent movie. Charlie is a clumsy waiter who spends his lunchtime at the roller rink, where he meets his love interest and gets invited to a party.

A number of funny falls occurred as was looked for, with Charlie outshining and outwitting any of the others on the floor. When he couldn't trip the "big guy" who was attempting to cop his girl, he used his old standby, the bamboo cane.
