Charlie Chaplin Beats The Kaiser Charlie Chaplin made a public service/propaganda movie in 1918. Titled 'The Bond,' the movie highlighted the bonds of friendship and the bonds of marriage, but emphasized the most important bond was...the Liberty Bond! Here's about half a minute of it.

During the First World War Chaplin was often criticized in England for 'not doing his bit.' Because Chaplin was a British subject, some of his countrymen resented Chaplin's extreme wealth and celebrity status while most of the British Empire was making sacrifices for the war effort. This film and a similar one he made for the British war effort were partly made to stem the criticism.

Chaplin's films were enormously popular with Allied troops on the Western Front. Surely as a morale-boosting comic actor Chaplin was far more valuable to the Allied cause than he would have been as an ordinary soldier.
