Starring: Charles Chaplin Director: Mack Sennett Production Company: Keystone USA, 1914 Duration: 6½ minutes Film Print: B&W print available from Roy Export Co. (Film Speed: 18 frames per second) Premiere with Davis's score: 1989, London 14 Players: l(=picc).1.1(=ssax).l - l.l.2(t/b).1 - perc(2): (I=timp.II=drum kit) - pno - banjo - vln.vlc.db This very short film consists of candid shots of a children's auto-car race by a Californian beach, in front of which Chaplin improvises a comedy routine. It is now of special interest since it features Chaplin's first appearance in his Tramp persona. Carl Davis's score is a musical rough-house complete with crashes, whistles and bangs.
