Description

Three classic silent comedies from Charles Chaplin - A Dog's Life (1918), Shoulder Arms (1918) and The Pilgrim (1923) - are here strung together to form a single feature length film with new music, narration and connecting material.

In A Dog's Life, The Tramp and his dog companion try to survive in the city. Shoulder Arms features Chaplin as a boot camp private who has a dream of being a hero, and in The Pilgrim, he becomes the new minister for the town of Devil's Gulch by mistake.
