Tango Tangles is a 1914 American film comedy short starring Charles Chaplin and Roscoe Arbuckle. The action takes place in a dance hall, with a drunken Chaplin, Ford Sterling, the huge and acrobatic Arbuckle fighting over a girl; the supporting cast features Chester Conklin and Minta Durfee. The picture was written and produced by Mack Sennett for Keystone Studios and distributed by Mutual Film Corporation. In Tango Tangles, Charlie Chaplin appears without makeup and his usual mustache, baggy pants, oversized shoes; the film was shot at a dance hall without any sort of formal script. Mack Sennett, in his 1954 autobiography King of Comedy, said of the impromptu nature of Tango Tangles, "We took Chaplin, Sterling and Conklin to a dance hall, turned them loose, pointed a camera at them, they made funny, and, it." Tango Tangles marked the last time that Ford Chaplin appeared in the same film. Sterling had decided to leave Keystone where he had gained most of his fame as the chief of the Keystone Cops.
The movie publication Bioscope wrote of Tango Tangles, "Jealousy in a dance room ends in a fight, engaged by the dancers and attendants." Another reviewer in The Cinema wrote, "The ballroom is soon converted into a battlefield which results in this Keystone being a real scream."

The Face on the Bar Room Floor (1914 film)
The Face on the Bar Room Floor is a short film written and directed by Charles Chaplin in 1914. Chaplin stars in this film, loosely based on the poem of the same name by Hugh Antoine d'Arcy. A painter turned tramp, devastated by losing the woman he was courting as a wealthy man, finds himself drunk and getting drunker by the minute with some sailors at a bar until he collapses, he keeps futilely trying to draw the woman's picture on the floor with a piece of chalk until he passes out cold at the end of the film. According to Chaplin expert Gerald D. McDonald, "The subtitles of the film were lines from the poem, but the original verses were altered to match the Keystone credo that life is a funny game at best." A reviewer for Moving Picture World wrote. Chaplain wins new laurels in the leading part."
