Emerging Chaplin profiles the talent of the best-known actor of silent comedy, Charles Chaplin. Follow the emergence of Chaplin's genius, from his early films, to his stint at Mack Sennett's Keystone studios, to his classics: Kid Auto Races, The Bank, The Tramp, The Rink, and Easy Street. Highlights include a look at Chaplin's enduring portrayal of the Tramp, a short, shabby man with a black moustache who waddled his way into the hearts of Americans. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. narrates this look at the comedian's extraordinary gifts, expressive grace, and perfect timing.
