The world’s first feature-length comedy & also Mr. Charles Chaplin’s 1st feature. The film is based on Dressler’s stage play “Tillie’s Nightmare” by A. Baldwin Sloane and Edgar Smith. It’s notable as being the only Chaplin full-length film which he neither wrote nor directed himself. It is the seventh of twelve movies that featured The Keystone Cops. According to Buster Keaton, Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle directed several parts of the movie but was uncredited for his work. Milton Berle claimed that he played the five-year-old paperboy in the film, but the role was actually portrayed by Gordon Griffith.
