Moments that stick out in the Chaplin canon, 22 February 2009
Author: gring0 from United Kingdom

Although not a success when it was released in 1919, scenes to look out for in his third film for First National Pictures is Chaplin again showing off his stunt skills by riding rampaging cows, and the classic scene involving "Blind Man's Buff', his brother 'Willie', and a car. The dream scene featuring the prepubescent girls foreshadows Chaplin's own private (for now) daemons. I deeply appreciated the thrill of Glen David Gold's Carter Beats the Devil, and his follow up was titled Sunnyside which is about I should say that the book is about Chaplin, following several story lines all looping back, thematically, to that change in character that you witness in "A Day's Pleasure," the first section.
