The Rink (1916) is one of his most popular comedies of all time and is perhaps best known, for displaying Chaplin’s amazing roller skating skills.
Waiter Causing Chaos
Chaplin’s The Little Tramp character is usually portrayed as a funny and clumsy fellow which causes restaurant chaos at work. The Rink movie is one simply titled ‘Skating’, and originally developed on stage by Sydney Chaplin.
Charlie the Bartender
Charlie employs an unorthodox approach to his work. He shakes an unusual cocktail; his whole body does a shimmy while the cocktail shaker remains immobile in his hands.
Making Food Bill
The Rink (1916) has its own origins in the form of a Karno Company sketch called “Skating”, which was written by Charlie’s brother. Chaplin’s eighth film for Mutual, The Rink, is one of his most popular comedies.
All Messed up
Chaplin’s eighth film for Mutual, The Rink, is one of his most popular comedies. Charlie is an inept waiter who prepares the bill of Mr. Stout (Eric Campbell) by examining the soup, spaghetti, melon stains and other remnants on the sloppy eater’s shirt front, tie, and ear.
