The Circus (1928)


Recommended Posts

Even when he is off mark, Chaplin is STILL the best.  From Wikipedia:

"The Circus is a 1928 silent film written and directed by Charlie Chaplin. The film stars Chaplin, Al Ernest Garcia, Merna Kennedy, Harry Crocker, George Davis and Henry Bergman. The ringmaster of an impoverished circus hires Chaplin's Little Tramp as a clown, but discovers that he can only be funny unintentionally."

I found the film, though not as mesmerizing as The Kid, City Lights or The Gold Rush, STILL a worthy addition to the Chaplin collection.  There was a lot of real life unfortunate distractions surrounding Chaplin when he made this, so that possibly carried over into the production of this film. Its still a great film and I rank it at a solid 9 out of 10...
