The Bond was a pretty entertaining PSA from Charlie Chaplin, 22 June 2009
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

This obvious PSA for Liberty Bonds was the last film presented on disc one of the "American Slapstick" DVD collection. Written, directed, and starring Charlie Chaplin, we go through the bonds of friendship, love, marriage, and the Liberty kind. The funniest segment was the "Love" part with The Tramp going through a courtship with his longtime leading lady Edna Purviance. Lots of stuff involving a fake moon, his cane, Cupid, and some wrapping paper contributes to the entertainment factor in that one. In the Liberty segment, Chaplin's brother Syd portrays the Kaiser who gets bopped by Charlie. Worth a look for anyone interested in all kinds of film miscellany.
