His Favorite Pastime

His Favorite Pastime, starring Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle – March 16, 1914

His Favorite Pastime is one of  Charlie Chaplin’s earlier appearances at the Little Tramp.  Although he looks like the Little Tramp, he hasn’t quite cemented the character of Charlie the Tramp at this point.

Case in point, Charlie wanders into a bar, becomes drunk, acts obnoxious, and pesters a young lady.   He follows her home and bothers her, until her husband gets rid of him.Unlike most of his later films, the “victims” of the Little Tramp haven’t done anything to “deserve” his enmity.
