"He wears an air of romantic hunger, forever seeking romance, but his feet won’t let him."
— Charles Chaplin on his character The Little Tramp (via zachpinkley)

Charlie’s restaurant number was 13, he used a similar gag in Shoulder Arms, too.

Gathering for the Liberty Loan Tour – WashingtonD.C.  April 1918
Charlie relates an amusing story from that day in his Autobiography.

“Very Soon I heard my introduction, so I bounded on to the platform in Fairbanksian style and without a pause let fly a verbal machine-gun barrage, hardly taking a breath: ‘The Germans are at your door! We’ve got to stop them! And we “will” stop them if you buy Liberty Bonds!  Remember, each bond you buy will save a soldier’s life- a mother’s son! – will bring this war to an early victory’.  I spoke so rapidly and excitedly that I slipped off the platform, grabbed Marie Dressler and fell with her on top of my handsome young friend, who happened to be the then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Franklin D. Roosevelt”  

*Future President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt, standing to the right of Marie Dressler who is kneeling down next to Charlie Chaplin, behind him is Douglas Fairbanks. & Mary Pickford
Sadly within a few short years Franklin Roosevelt (FDR) would be confined to a wheelchair due to polio.

You little fellow

The Cure (1917) - Charlie Chaplin

This scene is just too funny.  Charlie does not realize Eric is flirting with Edna across the room, he thinks he is flirting with him, he is just soaking it in, like “what the hell I’m cute”.  

The tramp always did the unexpected and the audience loved and still loves it.
