• USA Charlie the Decorator


Charlie, a paper hanger's assistant, drags the decorating equipment and his boss (with extreme difficulty) up a steep road. On the way his boss offers a friend a lift, adding to the already unmanageable weight. At the house the decorating becomes increasing chaotic and everyone gets covered in paste. The wife - suspecting the tradesmen of dishonesty - puts away the silver, while Charlie, tit-for-tat secures his watch with a safety pin. The scene is further complicated by the arrival of the wife's secret lover, an exploding stove, and the sudden return of the husband with a gun. (Verleiher-Text)
