Charlie Chaplin Behind The Screen 1916 This is the first six minutes of Behind The Screen, a Charlie Chaplin film made in 1916. In it Charlie plays an overworked, unappreciated roustabout for a movie company. It's a good example of Chaplin's remarkable ability to turn props into comedy objects. (Watch how many chairs he's able to carry at the 4:00 mark!)

I counted 11 chairs and a fake piano--not bad for a small fellow.

His timing was perfect, and I wonder how he did pick up all those chairs??

Chaplin wa a perfectionist. He'd look at objects and sense how he could use them for comedy bits--then he'd work the story around them. He also got plenty of training as a stage comedian in Britain before he became a movie star.
