Vanity Fair
8 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Was slapstick comedy the 'Vanity Fair' of the 20th century?

The story in 'Shanghaied', as in all of Chaplin's early one and two reelers, was thin on the ground, but the fact that it was episodic followed the tradition of the 19th century serial novel like 'Vanity Fair' or 'The Three Musketeers'. The fact that audiences could see a story rather than read about it made it more accessible.
