by Charles Chaplin 1918

-INTERMISSION-

Shoulder Arms
by Charles Chaplin 1918

Synopsis of A Dog’s Life:
The Little Tramp finds companionship with two fellow outcasts – Scraps, a stray mongrel, and a young girl exploited as a hostess in a disreputable dive, The Green Lantern. With Scraps’ help he overcomes two thieves from whom he wins a well-filled wallet, which provides the three with a happy end together.

Synopsis of Shoulder Arms:
Charlie is recruited to the “awkward squad”. Posted to the front line in France, he encounters all the privations of trench life – snipers, flood, food rations, solitude, lice and other vermin. He meets a French girl, whom he subsequently rescues from the German troops. After assuming a series of disguises, he manages to hijack the German Kaiser along with the Crown Prince and General von Hindenburg … but then wakes up, still in the “awkward squad”.
