Keystone 1914

Film still for Caught In The Rain


Charlie is smitten with a man's wife in the park and makes up to her, only to be warned off severely by the husband (Ambrose). He makes his way drunkenly back to his hotel in pursuit of a pretty girl. He is rebuffed, and makes his way precariously up the stairs, staggering into various guests on the way. Charlie's room is opposite that of Ambrose and his wife, and when Charlie strays into their room by mistake he is quickly ejected. The wife walks in her sleep, straight into Charlie's room. He leads her back, but is trapped by Ambrose's return and takes refuge outside on a balcony, only to be caught in the rain. A policeman mistakes him for a burglar and he is chased round the hotel.
