The Silent Clowns Film Series showcases silent rare and overlooked films from the 1920s with live piano accompaniment.
This Chaplin program focuses on his second year in films at Essanay. Not content to have his screen character be a figure of fun, today’s bill of HIS NEW JOB (’15), BY THE SEA (’15), THE BANK (’15), and POLICE (’16), illustrates Charlie’s development into a comic underdog, hero, and lover. Chaplin’s inspiration and hard work produced films that remain fresh and funny for audiences of all ages.
