The Bank (1915)

US 33m, B&W, Silent
Director: Charlie Chaplin; Cast: Charles Chaplin, Edna Purviance, Carl Stockdale, Billy Armstrong, Charles Insley, Lawrence A. Bowes, John Rand

The Bank 1915The Bank sees Charlie playing a janitor whose mop and bucket are the key props in this slapstick comedy with a touch of romance. Convinced that the typist in the bank is in love with him, after mistakenly interpreting her love letter to the cashier, Charlie is disappointed when she spurns his romantic advance. However, all may not be lost, when he finds himself dispatching would-be bank robbers. The Bank is a clever film with a twist that concludes in a sweet, but sad manner which becomes the hallmark later Chaplin films (Klaus Ming March 2016).
