Question & Film Week Nov. 28th

This week I mainly got email answers to the question, so thanks to everyone who responded. Last week's question was in Charlie's scene with Edna in the film 'In the Park' 'What does he fall over?' The answer is a baby buggy. Now the real question, 'Where are the babies in the baby buggy?' Edna is listed as playing a nurse maid in this film and appears to be rocking the buggy in the scene. Charlie falls right into the buggy and would have crushed anything that would have been in it. Of course, there were no babies in the buggy, only acting like there were. I wonder how many people who saw this film in 1915 and were wondering...

This brings me to the new question for this week. Not counting this film, with Edna playing a nurse maid, 'In what other films did Edna play a maid?' And for a change up this week, instead of a film, it would be a good week to listen to 'Smile: The Genius of Charlie Chaplin' a documentary from BBC Radio 2. Check this site and ednapurviance.org for more details. Thanks for visiting!

Hi Mark!
Thanks for your answer. I will have a new question up late Sunday or so. And this time a little different.

Hi! I'm having a guess it might have been "Triple Trouble". Just a guess, mind!

Welcome! Triple Trouble is a good guess and so is Work! The email answers have the same films. I will have a new quiz sometime on Monday! Thanks for visiting!
