Camouflage 1918

Only the second reel of this 1918 Jester comedy is known to survive. The first half, in which it is established that Marcel Perez (known as “Twede-Dan” here as opposed to his other numerous screen aliases,including “Tweedie, Tweedledum”, “Bungles”, “Robinet” and, I suspect, Julia Swayne Gordon) is a private eye who has decided that Nilda Baracchi is a German spy. He follows her hither and yon and the gags are mostly about his ability to disguise himself as a railroad porter, an armchair or a pile of discarded newspapers at a moment’s notice.
