3 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Chaplin's Essanay Comedies cinema's greatest comedian was first able to build his screen work around his performance style rather than forcing himself, as before, into Mack Sennett's frenzied Keystone comedy matrix. With this freedom Chaplin evolved in a year from the gag comedian of "His New Job" to the brilliant pantomimist of "A Night Out," "The Champion," "The Tramp" and "Shanghaied" to the profound satirist of "Police." Includes "Shanghaied," "A Night in the Show," "Burlesque on 'Carmen'" (all 1915), "Police," "Triple Trouble" (both 1916)
