In 1914, at the tender age of 25, a young film actor created one of the most indelible comedic characters of all time. Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp persona – one that lasted practically his entire career – first appeared on screen in 1914’s THE KID AUTO RACES AT VENICE. Clearly identified by his distinctive walk, his oversized, threadbare suit, his bowler hat and cane, the Little Tramp also had a distinct persona. The character delighted in bringing authority down a peg, had an impish charm and, despite his usually destitute circumstances, seemed to have a joy and lust for life that was unmatched.

With this series, the Brattle celebrates the whole career of Chaplin’s Little Tramp – from his origins in the Mack Sennett films of 1914 through his classic walk-off into the sunset in MODERN TIMES. Please join for this special series and remember to smile!
