Welcome to the brand new series on Hunger TV where we present a selection of Charlie Chaplin’s best films. Over the coming weeks we will highlight shorts, features and other skits from Chaplin’s career. This series provides you with a mixture of classic works and hidden gems that will make you laugh, cry and marvel at the genius of Chaplin.

‘Twenty Minutes of Love’ (1914) was Chaplin’s directorial debut. He also wrote and starred in the film playing the role of ‘a Pickpocket’. There are many similarities between the characters in these films as there are in all of his works.

Chaplin’s very first film was ‘Making a Living’ (1914). He later recounted that he did not like the character he played, ‘a Swindler’, which is why he invented ‘the Tramp’ character later. This film, like many of Chaplin’s other great works, relies heavily on the comedy from each situation rather than the narrative itself.
