Becoming Charley Chase
Peanuts and Bullets (1915)

*** (out of 4)

Charley Chase plays a starving artist who gets into with a fruit vendor (Harry McCoy) after trying to steal some food. Chase returns to his apartment where his landlady bugs him for the rent and then the day gets worse by running into his weight-lifting neighbor (Fritz Schade). After a day full of bad things Charley gets to see the woman everyone's crazy about as well as plan revenge on the vendor. This Keystone short is actually a pretty good little film that offers up quite a few laughs and memorable moments. Even at this early stage in his career Chase manages to be very charming and that devilish side lurking beneath that smile is on full display. I really enjoyed the physical style of humor he brought to the film including a funny sequence with him running up the stairs trying to avoid the landlady. He also has nice timing with McCoy who plays the fruit vendor and their scenes together manage a few laughs as well. Future director Edward F. Cline plays a cop here who keeps harassing the vendor and manages even more laughs. Being Keystone, the film ends with a wild chase and crash, which is what we expect and it's pretty exciting as well.
