The Idle Class

The Idle Class ★★★★

Another very funny Chaplin short in which he plays dual roles! It was nice to see he got some practice playing double characters in a film before making The Great Dictator. There is some great slapstick and Chaplin style gags and humor at play but this being one of his later short films, you can begin to see Chaplin's underlying social commentary that Chaplin pokes fun at. There is also some examples of his ideology of comedy and tragedy being closely related to one another. 8/10
