The Immigrant Details


[[Performer~P12334~Charles Chaplin~charleschaplin]]'s next-to-last Mutual Studios 2-reeler is as funny as his other 11 Mutual entries, though there's a stronger inner lining of poignancy. En route by boat from an unnamed country, immigrant [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] tries to make the best of the nausea-inducing rough seas. He then befriends fellow emigree Edna Purviance and her ailing mother. Months pass: [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] meets [[Performer~P58092~Purviance~ednapurviance]] in a restaurant. Quickly ascertaining that her mother has died, [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] appoints himself [[Performer~P58092~Purviance~ednapurviance]]'s protector. He even promises to pay for the meal; after all, he's just found a silver dollar on the street. But when the dollar lands on the ground with a leadlike thud, [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] realizes he's as broke as ever--and now he's at the mercy of blood-in-his-eye headwaiter Eric Campbell. But fortune smiles on [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] and [[Performer~P58092~Purviance~ednapurviance]] when a famous artist decides to hire the girl as his model. [[Performer~P12334~Chaplin~charleschaplin]] negotiates an excellent contract for his bride-to-be, and everything comes up roses. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
