Charlie Chaplin in THOSE LOVE PANGS (1914) – A fight to the finish

ThoseLovePangs

Charlie and his rival (Chester Conklin) are basically engaged in a Popeye-and-Bluto-like p***ing contest to see who can score a woman. First they hit upon their landlady, then they try for women in the park. Eventually, Charlie makes time with Chester’s woman and another man’s girlfriend before the men get their revenge on Charlie.

A very lively short, the best part of which is Charlie’s hyperbolic reactions to Chester’s having made time with a gorgeous blonde in the park.
