Public Domain Theater: Charlie Chaplin Shorts

Welcome to Public Domain Theater, your home for the wonderful world of films that have (in the United States, at least) fallen into the public domain, and are free for everyone to see!

We are back, everyone! And we have a little shakeup to the formula this time. Normally, we use this column to present a feature length film along with an animated short. This time around, we’ll instead be presenting three short films, all from that master of Silent Era slapstick, Charlie Chaplin!

See Chaplin’s loveable little tramp as he takes on the roles of a rookie police officer, a lovelorn janitor, and  . . . a caveman???
