Last of the Essanay Films
14 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

At the end of 1915, Charles Chaplin came to the end of his contract with Essanay Films, and sent his brother, Sidney Chaplin, out shopping for another contract with Mutual Films. His shopping spree was fruitful, and Chaplin was able to sign up with Mutual Films by the end of the year.

'Carmen' was Chaplin's last film with Essanay.
