One A.M. was a unique Charlie Chaplin silent film created for Mutual Films in 1916. It was the first film he starred in alone, except for a brief scene of Albert Austin playing a cab driver. Chaplin plays the role of a wealthman coming home late, after too much to drink. He only wants to go to bed, but 'everything' around him prevents him.

Its Charles Chaplin so can't be anything else but perfection. The man was a genius. Thanks to the contributor for listing all Chaplin's films on the archive, saves an awful lot of hunting.
To those who don't know html language but would like the list, just open notepad, copy and paste in everything from directly after 'Contact Information:' Internet Archive Charlie Chaplins etc. etc.etc......down to

Charlie showing all his moves, climbing, falling and my favorite, his tussle with a wonderful Murphey style bed plus... wish I had one of these beds without the flaws! I giggled like a schoolgirl at all the gags. Great one man show (a cabdriver at beginning).

Doesn't Get Better, And Great Audio
I agree with the other reviewer. Just once absolutely brilliant gag after another. I watched this 20+ times before I escaped danger of death through heart attack. The pawnshop short film is really great too, but I've never seen a purely comic Chaplin short that beats this. Also, I am not sure if the shorts did have a standard audio track to be played with the film, but this audio is very good and synched well. My issue with Chaplin stuff and other silent films is often the audio. Often when an original score has been written or even recorded, it is not joined with certain printings of the movies. A+ for this site and definitely for this short!

This short is the epitome of Chaplin's brilliance, in my humble opinion. It's all Charlie. Gag after gag in great timing, and one of his most physical roles. Pure slapstick. Enjoy!
