Titles/narrative in slapstick

 Another Chaplin classic. Really like the use of title inserts in this one, breaks up the action a bit and gives it a humorous tone. In the more classic examples of slapstick such as this, the dialogue is either very limited or non-existent, and I feel that these titles help to tell a bit of the story, without interrupting what should be fast-paced, funny action.
