THE IMMIGRANT (Theatrical Release USA 1917)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Immigrant—short silent film—provides Charlie Chaplin-style entertainment with its exploration of the immigrant’s challenges through the lense of comedy and compassion. Despite its age, the movie still shows great timing and professional presentation.
