Audience Reviews for Pay Day

  • Oct 23, 2011
    "Pay Day" was one of my favorite Chaplin shorts, out of the 12 or so that I have viewed so far and it shows the skills and techniques that Chaplin was acquiring and mastering. Many of these are scene first in some smaller scale way in his shorts before being done on a grander scale in his feature length films to come. One of the most clever and well done technique was the reverse action used to portray Chaplin being an expert brick catcher (Chaplin held the bricks and threw them towards the ground and this was played back to make it appear as if he caught every brick being thrown his way) and is one of many interesting tricks he used. The story itself has Chaplin as a construction worker instead of his Tramp character and his overbearing wife is apparently both that and his bank, she collects all (most thanks to Chaplin's slight of hand) his wages before he can barely step foot away from work. His co-workers and he go out for a night on the town and end up drunk and out all night and Chaplin is shown, in a rare nighttime scene, unsuccessfully trying to catch a ride home on a streetcar. He arrives just in time to get up for work and he tries to pretend to go to work and instead goes to sleep in the bathtub, or so he thinks until his wife catches on to him. This overall is both an amusing and well crafted two-reeler and really showcases Chaplin's growing skill as both actor and even more so, as Director.

    The funniest short that he has ever done, but what makes this only 4 stars in my scale is its too short for me to enjoy it more. Mack Swain, the Chaplin film commoner, is, as usual, hilarious in various roles, but this is the particular film that he really shined in.

    Fantastic 2 reeler by Chaplin. The brick gag is hilarious.
