In 1913, while on an American tour with Fred Karno’s music hall company, 24-year-old Charlie was signed by Mack Sennett for his Keystone comedies. Within one astonishing year (1914), Chaplin developed his Tramp into the screen’s most popular character — and boldly began to write and direct his own films. This program of restored shorts from the Cineteca di Bologna, the BFI and Lobster Films includes Kid Auto Races at Venice, the Tramp’s very first appearance, The Rounders, Dough and Dynamite, and much, much more. Approx. 100 min. DCP.
