Cruel Cruel Love

This early Chaplin film, Cruel Cruel Love has him playing a character as a rich, upper-class gentleman whose romance is endangered when his girlfriend oversees him being embraced by a maid.

Mr. Dovey is first seen on his knees proposing in the drawing room of his lady. The couple are overheard and mocked by the lady’s maid, whose laughter causes Minta to eject her from the house. To get back at her boss, she arranges a hoax with the gardener. She feigns injury and her cries bring the departing Dovey to her aid. The maid suddenly embraced Dovey. When Minta sees her maid flirting with Dovey, she rejects him in a jealous rage. Back at home the despondent Dovey drinks what he thinks is poison; only his highly amused butler knows it was just water. Waiting for the poison to take effect, Dovey has horrifying visions of his eternal damnation. Meanwhile, Minta has learned of her maid’s deception and has sent the gardener to Dovey with a letter of apology. “It’s too late. I’ve been poisoned,” says Dovey and the gardener goes back to retrieve Minta to be at her dying man’s side. Dovey now summons doctors to save him, drinking all the milk he can with evident distaste. When the physicians arrive, the butler lets them in on the joke and they play along too, jokingly examining him. Minta, having raced to her man’s home, learns of the hoax and tells Dovey he’s going to live. First relieved, then enraged, he attacks all the pranksters and finally embraces his lady, removing from his fingers a ball of hair he had pulled from his head and blowing it away.
