Chaplin at First National

Benefiting from what may have been the most favorable contract ever given a movie star, Chaplin created an unbroken chain of small masterpieces between 1918 and 1923. Commentary is largely superfluous: this program includes Pay Day, Sunnyside, A Day's Pleasure, and the sublime The Idle Class, in which Chaplin plays both the Tramp and his alter ego, a wealthy womanizer.
