Making a Living
Chaplin's debut film was a comedy short - the 6th of 12 films featuring the Keystone Cops. Chaplin played a "Swindler" in the film - he had not yet developed his familiar trademark character of "The Tramp." Chaplin's first feature film appearance was in Tillie's Punctured Romance. In Chaplin's second picture, the 11-minute Kid Auto Races in Venice, he invented his immortal, trademark Little Tramp character.
