I've eaten worse.Wilmas stuffed peppers.

I’ve eaten worse.Wilmas stuffed peppers.

Here we have Charlie Chaplin in a silent movie.Slap stick comedy at its finest.The little tramp finds his way to Alaska in search of his fortune.Unprepared it doesn’t take long for him to get lost in the snow and end up in the cabin of a wanted man.There’s a tussle and the big dude bolts it.So he’s holed up here for a bit then shoots a bear eats it and heads to the nearest town.He meets a girl he likes and then we have the classic Disney – Boy likes girl,boy not good enough for girl,girl leads him on,boy thinks its real,girl stands him up,boy crys and leaves.What a bitch.But wait!then the tramp who she was fucking with his head is now a millionaire!And they all lived happily ever after.Horse shit.This film was about 30 minutes too long.
