Given that I'm not much into slapstick, it was nice to be surprised into finding many of these funny. Some stories are more timeless than others, and I chose to watch them as the revue with each being introduced, with some added context, by Chaplin himself.

This was my first introduction to Chaplin and now I know what all the fuss is about! He is still very funny all these decades later and worth taking the time to discover.
