Two Line Reviews - #206

Short Movie: The Face On The Bar Room Floor (1914)

Plot: An artist loses his long time love to a client who comes for getting his portrait drawn. After years of memories,when the artist sees the client and his lover with their kids,he chooses the company of a bar and finally passes out in it.

  • An adaptation of a poem without any dialogs or even narration boards - a daring attempt and it is also successful in grabbing the viewer attention.
  • The soothing piano music that accompanies the show onscreen for the entire duration.
  • Chaplin has performed differently - He's not the usual cross-footed tramp here!
A different watch-worthy attempt of Chaplin.
