About the Films

To kickoff our first-ever Hamptons Family Film Festival, we’re excited to present a special program of short films featuring one of the most beloved figures in the history of cinema: The Tramp. It was 100 years ago when Charlie Chaplin first donned the ill-fitting garb and waddled across the screen to create the iconic character that has charmed movie audiences of all ages for the past century.

THE RINK | 1916
An uproarious piece of slapstick comedy, Chaplin's THE RINK finds the famous Tramp as a waiter at a five-star restaurant where, despite himself, he manages to cause a proper ruckus. Made nearly a century ago and just two years into Chaplin's career, THE RINK also features a dazzling set piece in which The Tramp takes to a crowded roller skating rink.

As a slightly-less-than-competent assistant in a pawnshop, The Tramp gets entangled with his boss and co-workers, and stumbles through a series of bizarre experiences.

Instead of the famous garb for which Chaplin's The Tramp was best known, this short begins with him in the bee-striped uniform of a prison inmate.  After escaping jail, he's lucky enough to enjoy the better side of life after saving a wealthy young woman from drowning. But the young woman's boyfriend isn't so impressed and would rather see The Tramp back behind bars.
