The Tramp 1915

the-tramp

Charlie is a tramp on the road. A hobo manages to exchange Charlie’s sandwich for a brick so Charlie must eat grass. The same hobo molests a farmer’s daughter; Charlie comes to aid with the help of the brick. When two more hobos show up Charlie throws all three into a lake. The grateful girl takes Charlie home where he fails as a farmhand. He again helps drive off the hobos (who are now trying to break into the house). The girl’s fiance arrives. Though a hero, Charlie, knowing he must go, writes a farewell note and leaves for the open road. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>
