Chaplin's Art of Comedy

Movie Summary

Director:
Samuel M. Sherman
Released:
1966
Rating:
R
Chaplin's Art of Comedy is a black and white documentary on one of the silent screens greatest comedians. This documentary features Charlie Chaplin who is also called "the original comedian". There are excerpts from a number of his earliest screen appearances restored from original nitrate prints for this release. Charles Chaplin was one of the rare comedians who not only financed and produced all his films (except one), but was the author, actor, director and soundtrack composer of them as well. He started performing in the 1920's then entertained for decades. He is relentlessly chased by crazy cops, protective fathers and irate husbands as he gracefully deflates the arrogant, defeats the lawless and romances the beautiful woman. This documentary features the growth of Chaplin into a genius comedian moving from all-out clowning to a more refined dramatic comedy technique and touching audiences' hearts as they watched the "Little Tramp's" touching attempts to find love or achieve success.
