U.S., 1928, 62 min, 35mm, Dir. Charlie Chaplin, Rated G, Janus Films
“Innovative and timeless.” – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
When we first meet Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp in this comic gem, he’s in typical straits: broke, hungry, destined to fall in love, and just as sure to lose the girl. Mistaken for a pickpocket and pursued by a peace officer into a circus tent, the Tramp becomes a star when delighted patrons think his escape from John Law is an act. At the first ever Academy Awards ceremony, Chaplin was honored with a special statuette for “versatility and genius in writing, acting, directing, and producing The Circus.” And, it went without saying, for again bringing laughter to packed movie palaces across America.
