Considered to be the first full-length comedy film made in the U.S., it stars the legendary Charlie Chaplin as a cad who seduces a country girl, played by Marie Dressler, in an attempt to steal her money. At the same time, he also is trying to hold onto his girlfriend, portrayed by Mabel Normand. Adding to the comedic frenzy: The Keystone Kops.
