If you look at the whole career of that madcap genius Cecil B. DeMille,
his style and preoccupations changed considerably over time, but one
thing was evident from day one his unshakeable pomposity and
over-confidence. That is why he was always a ripe target for satire.
Getting an early shot in on the heels one of DeMille's earliest
successes was Charlie Chaplin, with his farcical yet precisely aimed
Burlesque on Carmen.
These were the days when people would go to see a popular picture many
times over. Chaplin too has clearly studied the original, and played
upon the familiarity it would have had with audiences of the time. He
has mimicked the sets, set-ups and even copied many of the titles
verbatim. He even bases gags around very minor aspects of the DeMille
film such as the soldiers and smugglers pushing at the door. All this
provides a rich environment for Chaplin to tweak into hilariously
This doesn't appear to be an especially popular or well-known short,
perhaps because without the genuine little tramp and modern setting it
is not considered kosher Charlie. Personally I feel it is one his best
Essanay pictures, for a number of reasons. Virtually the whole of
Chaplin's act was satirical on some level, whether he was lampooning
the upper class, social norms or modern fads, and generally the bigger
the target the bigger the laughs. And simply because of its period
trappings it allows him to do funny business with props and situations
he would never normally get hold of, such as the numerous gags
involving his sword. With his semi-faithful recreation of a
contemporary drama, you get to see the considerable straight acting
talents of Chaplin and his leading lady Edna Purviance, in a role
unlike any other she played, but one she is very suited to. You also
have John Rand being very funny in his own right, and Leo White getting
the lengthiest and most creative pummelling he ever received from
Charlie. Burlesque on Carmen is a unique standout in Chaplin's career,
but also great fun to watch.
All of which brings us to the all-important statistic
