A Dog's Life

Charles Chaplin | 1918 | ★★★★
In this delightfully funny short film, a little tramp and his mongrel find their attempts to fill their stomachs hampered by several policemen, a couple of muggers, a publican, and a lunch wagon proprietor. Chaplin, Edna Purviance, and Scraps the dog prove good value, whilst Charlie’s brother Syd also appears, in this the comedian’s premiere short for First National Films.
