In this thread, viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13267" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank the film includes Arbuckle and a revolving door and I thought it was funnier than what I've seen Chaplin do. They are not seen much as a comedy props anymore.
If my experience last Friday is anything to go by, they wouldn't work as comedy props anymore. The one I often walk through on my way to work is programmed (I found out by mischance) to stop dead if your back foot so much as brushes against the panel behind you. Not much fun in a revolving door designed with safety-stop technology!
