"A Woman" (short), 1915. Men fight over women. Written by, directed by & starring Charles Chaplin.

Concept: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Story: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Characters: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4). It doesn't have the brilliant sort of physical routines that he's known for, but I'd still place it among Chaplin's best performances - continuously, charmingly funny.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.4/4 (Okay)
