A routine Chaplin short - which makes it better than most other silent shorts.

Another humorous, if not forgetable, Chaplin film,

Not a particularly memorable film but still good. Chaplin and Scraps make great co-stars.

love the dance scene

Cool short by Chaplin, which isn't at the level of his big works, but is still an amazing start for one of the best careers in history of cinema.

the tramp tries to save a girl singer from an accustomed case of 'economic extortion' and heroically takes possession of the wallet of the rich drunk man

The best in "the Chaplin Revue", with a story that felt like a prototype of either "The Kid" or "Modern Times" when it comes to the bond between the 2 main characters(In this case, a dog). Many genuinely funny moments, and maybe has the happiest ending of all Chaplin's works.

Hilarious! One of Chaplin's best and not even one of his features. There were parts in this where I couldn't stop laughing. Amazing.

The package starts strong with a thirty minute short featuring Chaplin as the tramp who comes across a stray dog. The symbolism is obvious, the life of the tramp is related to the life of the dog. The film takes place almost entirely within about one city block as the tramp is chased by cops and gangsters. It?s a very gag dependent film with a lot of really clever physical set pieces and chases, though the film falters at one point with a gag about a woman crying all over someone. The filmmaking is quite strong for something made during the Woodrow Wilson administration, a good start to my journey through the films of Chaplin.

The cutest dog ever on film, and Chaplin's first attempt at a feature length film rather than a short. It definitely leaves you wanting more, but is a nice stepping stone for things to come.

A touching and compassionate tale of a man, his love, and his dog. Comic sequences are quick and steady, and there is a lot of genuine feeling pulsing through a short running length.

Plan on seeing it soon.

A cute and funny short story about a tramp and the new dog he met. He will help him to find money and a new wife. Sweet ending and some nice funny moments.
