Chaplin's Tramp

It may have escaped your notice that 2014 is the centenary of the debut of Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp in Kid Auto Races at Venice (1914) an 11-minute silent short made by Keystone Studios and shot during the Junior Vanderbilt Cup. It was Chaplin's second released film. Note the camera in the background. Getting in its way was the "plot". Chaplin signed this photo. The Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland, delved into its Chaplin Archives to create the exhibition Chaplin Between War and Peace (CLICK).
