1930s & Earlier / 100th Anniversary of First Chaplin Film
February 2, 2014 marked the hundredth anniversary of the release of Charlie Chaplin's first film--Making A Living. In this film made by Keystone Studios, Chaplin plays a swindler dressed in a long coat and top hat who sported a long mustache and a monocle. Chaplin's famous Little Tramp character would debut in his next fim, Kid Auto Races at Venice. He did, however, carry a cane and wear baggy pants in this one. Years later Chaplin said he was disappointed that his funniest scene in Making A Living was cut out of the film by actor/director Henry Lehrman, the other man in this photo. Film historians suspect Lehrman, who had a reputation for being self-centered, did not want to be upstaged by Chaplin. Within a short time Chaplin became so enormously popular that he demanded--and got--artistic control over all his films.
