Half-reel made for the Liberty Loan Committee and distributed free throughout the country. The actors show that bonds of friendship, love and marriage are inspiring but the most important bonds of all are Liberty Bonds, the blockbuster which will knock out the Kaiser.Written by

The Bond was a pretty entertaining PSA from Charlie Chaplin
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.
