The Vagabond
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The Vagabond, Chaplin's third Mutual film, was an important step in Chaplin's career, in which he interweaves pathos as an integral part of the comedy. He imposed an unlikely happy ending on The Vagabond, in which the gypsy drudge demands that the car she is being taken away be turned…
One A.M.
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
One A.M., Chaplin's fourth Mutual, is an impressive piece of virtuosity, a solo performance except for a brief appearance by Albert Austin as a taxi driver. The film is a tour de force of Chaplin's superb pantomime and comic creativity performed in a restricted space, a brilliant experiment that he…
The Count
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The fifth film in the Mutual series, The Count, further develops the situations of films in which Charlie impersonates a man of means in order to underscore the contrast between rich and poor--one of his favorite themes.

Easy Street
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies

The Cure

The Cure, the tenth film in the series, is perhaps the funniest of the Mutuals. It was partly inspired in its setting by the Fred Karno sketch, The Hydro, which was set in a hydrotherapy clinic.
The Immigrant
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The Immigrant, which contains elements of satire, irony, and romance as well as cinematic poetry, endures in the twenty-first century as a comic masterpiece.

A Fool There Was
The original "Vamp," Theda Bara stars as an exotic temptress who lures a once faithful man away from his wife. Only a handful of Bara's films survive today, but this is the drama for which she is best remembered. The film shocked audiences and brought something unexpected to the silent…
Sherlock Holmes
The film faithfully retains the play's famous set pieces--Holmes's encounter with Professor Moriarty, his daring escape from the Stepney Gas Chamber, and the tour-de-force deductions. It also illustrates how Gillette, who wrote the adaptation himself, wove bits from Conan Doyle's stories ranging from "A Scandal in Bohemia" to "The Final…
