In The Pawnshop (1916) Charlie Chaplin plays a pawnbroker’s assistant helping a variety of eccentric customers while he flirts with the owner’s daughter and gets into scrapes with his colleague. Pie-throwing and many great gags ensue. And when a diamond thief arrives, can Charlie save the day? Don’t miss it!
Buster Keaton, starring in The Electric House (1922), takes a job outfitting a mansion with labor-saving devices to impress the owner’s daughter even though he is completely unfit for the job. The film features many jaw-dropping stunts.
