The Immigrant - 1917 – Black & White. Charlie finds himself aboard a ship heading for a new life in the USA. Onboard, be befriends a girl and her mother whom he gives all his money after they have been robbed of what little money they had. Once in the new land, our hero now finds it difficult to eat as he has no money of his own until he finds a coin which he then promptly loses through a hole in his pocket. All turns out well when he finds the girl again and despite some difficulties they finally marry. Easy Street - 1917 – Black & White. In this feature, Chaplin swops in his trademark walking cane for a policeman’s truncheon. Easy Street is a part of town occupied by folk who are rough and tough – not the best place for a small and skinny policeman to walk his beat. However, in this classic tale, Chaplin demonstrates that the little guy can win the day. The Knockout - 1914 – Black & White. This is really a Fatty Arbuckle film in which Chaplin has a small part as a troubled and troublemaking boxing referee. As with most ‘Keystone’ comedies, those officers of law and lunacy, The Keystone Cops, ensure that the comic prize fight is followed by a frenzied and chaotic chase. Fatty Arbuckle’s boxing opponent in this film, Edgar Kennedy, was a real boxer, once going 14 rounds with the great Jack Dempsey.
