Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Though made over seventy years ago, Charge It tells a story that will be all too familiar to the Yuppie generation. Clara Kimball Young plays the wife of just-getting-by businessman Herbert Rawlinson. When Rawlinson is promoted into a higher-paying position, the previously frugal Young goes on a buying spree. Charging everything to her husband's account, Young's sense of responsibilty goes flying out the window, leading to a disastrous romantic fling with roue Edward M. Kimball. Both Clara Kimball Young and Herbert Rawlinson were past their prime when Charge It was filmed in 1921, though both gave enthusiastic and believable performances.
