Audience Reviews for Kid Auto Races at Venice

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 the second movie Charlie Chaplin appeared in, but to be honest, there's not much to this silent-short.

This is notable b/c it's the first film Chaplin wears his famous costume. It says so in the beginning. Haha.
