Kid Auto Races at Venice (1914)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
In this short, Charlie, dressed as a tramp for the first time, goes to a baby-cart race in Venice, California. He causes a great deal of trouble and confusion, both off the track (getting in the way of the cameraman) and on (interfering with the race). He succeeds in irritating both the participants and the public.

Not nearly as interesting or engaging as his later short films. However, Chaplin did not direct this, so maybe he's not entirely to blame.
This is notable b/c it's the first film Chaplin wears his famous costume. It says so in the beginning. Haha.
