Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Count’ (1916)

The tailor’s handyman (played by Charlie Chaplin) burns a count’s trousers while ironing them and is fired. His superior (Eric Campbell) discovers a note explaining the count can’t attend a party, and dresses up like one to take his place. Chaplin also goes to the residence hosting the party, but runs into the tailor. They both then struggle to win the fair maiden, Miss Moneybags (Edna Purviance). Soon, Charlie is distracted by a gypsy girl and the tailor must fend off other suitors. The real count finally arrives, learns of the imposters, and calls the police. Chaplin makes a mad dash through the party and scampers away to safety.
