The Floorwalker

The Floorwalker

In this comedy, the Tramp visits
a department store as a penniless customer but
due to physical likeness he is soon mistaken for an
embezzling floorwalker and, as it is so often the case
with him, begins to create havoc. The film is the case
in point of how Chaplin acts (and directs). As a character,
he is always active, creates comic situations, and
uses props. He is the one to push the envelope and –
unlike Buster Keaton – makes gags actively.

About the Director:

Charles Chaplin

Charles Chaplin (1889, London, United Kingdom – 1977, Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland) is considered one of the early pioneers of cinema. He became world-famous as Tramp in the silent film era. From the plethora of legendary films he made, let us mention The Kid, Modern Times or The Great Dictator. In 1972, he won the Honorary Academy Award for “the incalculable effect he has had in making motion pictures the art form of this century”.
