At the time of filming, Charles Chaplin and Georgia Hale were having an affair, so that when their finale's lingering kiss was filmed, it was (according to Hale in Unknown Chaplin ) "not acting". By the time the movie was re-issued in 1942, Chaplin was long done with Hale, and he trimmed their final scene to exclude the long kiss. See more »
In the dancing scene with Georgia and the Lone Propector at first you see him holding the cane straight and trying to keep his trousers up with his right hand. After the scene change he is holding it upside down and he uses the bend part of the cane to keep his trousers up. See more »
One of the best Chaplin movies, which means one of the best movies ever made. Good structure and a lot of excellent classic scenes such as `Eating the shoe' and `The Roll Dance'. Both the original version and the second release have their own charm.
