Audience Reviews for The Tramp

The Tramp is early Charles Chaplin and also was a starting point for a lot of the techniques and ideas Chaplin would use from here on out. This is a fun 20 minute short from one of films first comedians and it's what you'd expect from him. Chaplin plays The Tramp, who fights off some burglars and helps a girl get her money back. He's then taken to her home where her father rewards him with a job. The burglars arrive again and The Tramp must fight them off again. If you are just getting into Chaplin, The Tramp is a great place to start. I also recommend this to anyone loves Charles Chaplin. This may not be considered one of his best, but it's still Chaplin.

Tramp Charlie works on a farm while hoping to woo the farmer's daughter. Endless sight gags involving a poking pitchfork, various blows to the head and bags of flour falling on people. Not so wonderful, though the ending adds some pathos.

A somewhat funny early Chaplin film. The use of intertitles would've made it much better though.
