Full movie description "College Chums":While in a park, a young woman sees her fiancé being quite affectionate with another woman. When she calls him on the telephone to demand an explanation, he tells her that it was his sister. She is not satisfied, and insists on coming over to meet his 'sister'. As the young man broods over how to get out of trouble, an old college friend comes over, and he offers to pretend to be the sister. At first this works, but soon it has created even more complications.
Reviews of the College ChumsThis amusing feature is one of a number of light-heartedly risqué comedies that belie some of the common stereotypes of the silent era. This kind of story, involving mix-ups resulting from dressing as the opposite gender, soon afterward became even more popular, yet this early feature already makes very good use of the idea. It is also noticeable that the silent features that use this idea are often much less self-conscious and much more natural than some of the more recent movies to use it.
The story of the "College Chums" starts with a young man whose fiancée has seen him in the company of another woman. When his claim that it was his sister is doubted, his college chum tries to help him out by dressing up as a woman, to be his 'sister'. The rest of the action and comedy that follow make very good use of this setup, as each of the characters in turn is annoyed, embarrassed, or tricked. The only thing that's really missing would be some character development, which in 1907 was not yet found in very many movies.
It combines slapstick with gender jokes, and even when it gets quite lively, it was planned carefully enough so that the fixed camera field is not much of a limitation. It all works quite well.
