In 1914, Charles "Charlie" Chaplin walked onto the screen of a one-reel Keystone comedy, "Kid Auto Races at Venice," dressed, for the first time, as the Little Tramp, changing silent films forever. That appearance marked the beginning of a character that would become one of the most loved in the world, created by a man who would be equally loved and hailed as a comic genius. From 1914, well into the era of the talkies, Charlie Chaplin entertained audiences around the world with his slapstick and visual humor, first in one-reel comedies and later in two and three-reel shorts followed by, his best remembered works and greatest achievements, his feature films. They included "The Kid" (1921), "The Gold Rush" (1925), "City Lights" (1931) and "Modern Times" (1936). "Classic Chaplin: Screen Images From His Films" is a treasury of 80 images taken from nearly 40 of his films and movie trailers for Keystone, Essanay, Mutual, First National and United Artists, beginning with his screen debut as the lady-charming swindler in "Making a Living" (1914) and ending with "Modern Times" (1936). At 44 pages in length and 5 x 8 in size,"Classic Chaplin: Screen Images From His Films" is a jam packed collection of rare and unique images that Chaplin fans are sure to enjoy.
