One A.M.

Directed by Charlie Chaplin
United States, 1916
Comedy, Short, Family
  • Silent
  • English


After a night on the town, Charlie comes home to the house where he is staying, drunk and unable to find his key. For the next twenty minutes he staggers into, out of, and through the house in an inebriated confrontation with the house itself.

Our take

One A.M. strips comedy down to its bare essentials leaving the king of silent comedy to give us all a one man show. Swapping his famous Tramp figure for that of a drunken aristocrat, Charlie Chaplin’s balletic grace and inventive use of sets produces pure and unrivalled slapstick gold.
