Comment on The Knockout, starring Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle by David Jendrycki https://famousclowns.org/charlie-chaplin/short-films/the-knockout/#comment-2235 Sat, 02 May 2020 21:42:21 +0000 https://famousclowns.org/?p=4112#comment-2235 The Knockout was originally released as a Fatty Arbuckle picture. Today, it is generally regarded as a Chaplin picture. Although basically a cameo appearance (about 3 minutes), Charlie as the boxing referee is definitely the highlight of the film.

I actually perform as a Chaplin impersonator in Chicago. I’ve been doing ‘The Little Tramp’ for the past 30 years at many different venues including the Chicago International Film Festival. I noticed one small error under ‘The Music of Charlie Chaplin’. It incorrectly lists ‘Smile’ as being from ‘City Lights’ It is actually from “Modern Times”.
Again, a wonderful site. So educational and fun. Thank you!
Yours,
David Jendrycki
