Bowery toughie Chimmie Fadden was the creation of New York Sun journalist E. W. Townsend. Chimmie proved popular enough with Sun readers to spawn a novel, play, and finally, a 1915 4-reeler. Victor Moore stars as the boisterous Chimmie, who decides to mend his ways when he is befriended by a society lady. She hires the Fadden family as servants, leading to a spot of bother when Chimmie's crooked brother (Raymond Hatton) tries to abscond with the silverware. As for Chimmie himself, he inaugurates a romance with French maid Camille Astor, though he's too shy to give her a kiss until the final fadeout. Chimmie Fadden was directed by Cecil B. DeMille, who was reteamed with Victor Moore five months later for Chimmie Fadden Out West.
