THE TRAMP (Theatrical Release USA 1915)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Tramp—silent short film—must be watched carefully to follow its storyline because the story runs fast and it is easy to miss something even with a turn of the head. It tells its story very well and it’s a wonderful introduction to Charlie Chaplin’s acting talents.
