“This is definitely one of Chaplinu0026#39;s top 5 or 6 shorts. The part with Albert Austin and the clock is just so hilarious, and I really like the end of that bit where the drunk gets pushed down, just because it makes no sense. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think this is the exact point in Chaplinu0026#39;s oeuvre in which he matured to the point in which he could make masterpieces. Donu0026#39;t get me wrong I like many of his earlier shorts, but everything he did from this point on could be argued as a masterpiece of comic cinema.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is true that there isnu0026#39;t a great amount of pathos in this one, but I like the fact that there a just so many ridiculous situations that come one after the other. A+ grade.”
