Charlie is a boot camp private who has a dream of being a hero who goes on a daring mission behind enemy lines.
Poking fun at World War 1? Only Chaplin could find raucous humor in the horrors of wartime! Fronted by Chaplin’s iconic Little Tramp persona, this controversial comedy depicts life in the trenches through the subversiveness of slapstick. Beware: beneath the jokes lay a powerful anti-war missive.
