Sinopsis : las primeras películas de Chaplin en el estudio Keystone usaban la fórmula normalizada de Mack Sennett, que consistía en comedia, pasteles y gestos exagerados. La pantomima de Chaplin fue más sutil, siendo más adecuada para comedias románticas y farsas domésticas. Las gags visuales, sin embargo, seguían exactamente el patrón de comedia de la Keystone, en el vagabundo atacaba agresivamente a sus enemigos con piedras y ladrillos. El público de la época amaba a este nuevo comediante, aunque los críticos decían que las travesuras del personaje eran vulgares. Más tarde, Chaplin se ofreció para dirigir y protagonizar sus propias películas. Que son las que se recogen en este DVD
