Charlie attempts to meet his favorite movie actress at the Keystone Studio, but does not win friends there.
The Tramp visits a jukebox and falls taken with with the gorgeous 'Keystone Girl' (Virginia Kirtley) he sees on the screen. Physically ejected from the jukebox for his unruly behavior, he makes his thanks to the Keystone studios and causes chaos among the various productions. a neighborhood fireplace causes the Keystone crew to require their cameras on location to film the drama. The Tramp follows on and manages to spoil that film furthermore. The Tramp’s burning want to be among the show crowd is finally destroyed at the film's conclusion once he's doused with water from the fireplace brigade's hose. comedian failed to believe the film's director, Saint George 'Pop' Nichols, associate improvement over Henry Lehrman. comedian remembered Nichols in his life history as having 'but one gag, that was to require the comedian by the neck and bounce him from one scene to a different. i attempted to counsel subtler business, however he too wouldn't listen. ‘We haven't any time, no time!’ he would cry. All he needed was associate imitation of Ford Sterling.' all the same, among the film's precious moments area unit Chaplin’s improvisations with a revolver. The Tramp’s use of the gun as a pick furthermore as lighting a roll of tobacco from a piece shot area unit the beginnings of his use of comic transposition. The title of the film may be a variation of the term 'a stage-door Johnny' (a young man UN agency frequents stage doors seeking the corporate of actresses or chorus girls). The film shares similarities to The masker, His New Job (1915), and Behind the Screen (1916) within the fascinating glimpses they supply of the atmosphere of early Hollywood film studios. many Keystone personnel (including Henry Lehrman, Roscoe Arbuckle, and Ford Sterling) seem in a very Film Johnnie as themselves.
