The Bank (1915)

The Bank is a silent slapstick comedy. It was Charlie Chaplin’s tenth film for Essanay Films. Released in 1915, it is a slight departure from the tramp character, as Charlie Chaplin plays a janitor in a bank. Edna Purviance plays the secretary on whom Charlie has a crush and dreams that she has fallen in love with him. Filmed at the Majestic Studio in Los Angeles. There doesn’t appear to be any evidence that this film was received any differently from the bulk of Chaplin’s early work, but today this film is often considered one of his best efforts during his Essanay period.
