1914 marked the Major League debut of Babe Ruth and the completion of the Panama Canal. But for film lovers, 1914 may be best remembered as the year we were given the gift of feature length comedy. Entering territory previously reserved only for epics, Charlie Chaplin gave comedy its first six-reel treatment, and we’ve been laughing it up ever since. In one of his last roles before disappearing into his iconic Little Tramp persona, Chaplin plays a morally bankrupt con artist who dupes a country girl into marriage in order to steal her money. With the legendary Mack Sennett behind the lens, you can count on oodles of classic Keystone gags and pratfalls in this hilarious slapstick sendup of gold diggers. Also starring Marie Dressler and Mabel Normand.
