The Bond(1918) is an extremely funny short film that was done to support the war effort. The film is made up of a few skits about the many kinds of bonds. The most important bond that the title refers to are the Liberty Bonds. Charles Chaplin shows in The Bond(1918) why he was one of the biggest stars in the early part of the Twentifth Century. The Bond(1918) is to World War 1 what The Great Dictator(1941) was to World War 2.
