Laughing Gas

  • USA Tuning His Ivories (mehr)


Charles Chaplin arrives at work in a dentist surgery. He surveys the waiting room with a superior air, removes his gloves, and gets to work - when it transpires he is actually the dentist's assistant. He is left to treat a patient with laughing gas (and a mallet). On his way to collect a prescription he flirts with the dentist's wife, accidentally pulling off her skirt, and gets into trouble with a large man and a passer-by, knocking their teeth out by throwing bricks. Back in the surgery Charlie uses an enormous pair of pliers on a patient before the infuriated dentist, his wife, and all who Charlie has abused catch up with him. (Verleiher-Text)
