Kid Auto Races at Venice, Cal.

US 1914. PC: Keystone. D: Henry Lehrman. Starring Charles Chaplin. 147 m /16 fps/ 7'. Chaplin Opus 2. BFI/NFTVA. ♪ Neil Brand. Wednesday 6 July 2005, Cinema Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Photochemical look. The first film with Chaplin as the Tramp, it's a one-joke movie: the annoying guy keeps appearing in front of the camera, spoiling every shot of the newsreel.
