Charles Chaplin as Writer, Director and Actor
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Now that Chaplin was given the enviable opportunity to write, direct and act in his own two reeler films, he churned out about 36 films in 1914 alone with the Keystone Film Company. In 1915, he signed up with Essanay Films and made up about half of that amount as he was writing and directing at the same time.
