Film still for A Night Out


Charlie and Ben cause a disturbance in a restaurant and are thrown out by the head waiter. Later at a hotel, and very drunk, Charlie makes the mistake of flirting with the head waiter's wife (played by Edna Purviance). All the parties leave but both couples check in to the same new hotel as each other. Edna pursues her runaway dog into Charlie's room and caught in her room after leading her back - Charlie jumps from the window and encounters Ben who has been sleeping in the park. They go back upstairs and a fight breaks out between them, resulting in Charlie being dumped in the bath.
