Charlie Chaplin Festival
This collection of Charlie Chaplin shorts features four titles from 1917. In "The Adventurer," the Tramp (Charlie Chaplin) escapes from jail and saves a drowning girl (Edna Purviance) and her mother. In "The Cure," Chaplin plays a drunk who wreaks havoc by smuggling a supply of liquor into a health spa. "Easy Street" finds the Tramp becoming a policeman who aids the poor, and in "The Immigrant" Charlie wins -- and loses -- money in a card game on a ship bound for America.
