The Influence of Charles Chaplin
7 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made his mark with the Keystone Film Company, Essanay and Mutual Films, Charles Chaplin's influence on Hollywood comedy in the silent period filtered down into Hal Roach's productions. Chaplin's stage contemporary, Stan Laurel, also fell under this spell in 'Just Rambling Along' before he managed to carve out his own identity with Oliver Hardy.

Not a significant film for Stan Laurel, but a clear example of Chaplin's influence.
