Saturday Night at the Movies: "One A.M."

Welcome to "Saturday Night at the Movies," a weekly feature in which I'll share a full-length movie, available for honest-to-God free on the Internet, that gets the ol' JB stamp of approval.

Just a short for you this week, but it's one of my favorites. One A.M. was made by Charlie Chaplin during his fruitful period at Mutual, and seriously, every one of those shorts is a classic; it caught him right as he was perfecting the form of the two-reel comedy, before he moved on to longer works. This is my favorite of that bunch--a pantomime of uproarious drunkenness, done almost entirely solo. Enjoy.
