Charles Chaplin / US, 1928 / 72 min.

One of the major classics of the silent film era. Chaplin plays a dorky tramp who falls in love with the daughter of a circus director. He pulls off deadly stunts on the tightrope and gets locked in a cage with a sleeping lion. His ineptitude makes him a huge slapstick hit for the show.
