Caught in the Rain


The First Film by Charles Chaplin, Non-Co-Directed


Caught in the Rain by Charles Chaplin, 1914:



A reboot of Chaplin's and Maddern's Twenty Minutes of Love / The figures are larger in the frame than they ever were before now, in the first film of which Chaplin can boast full authorship / Try to open a lock with a cigarette (brilliant) / A cane in the jacket pocket / The way you go to bed after drinking: stagger before the mattress, peel off and hurl your clothes, then stare into the imaginary camera / What did Brando think of Chaplin? / Go to bed drunk in window-decurtained early-morning exposure / No vindication
