It is to my sentimental mind the best picture in its own way that Charlie has ever
turned out. It doesn't bring the roof down with laughter from beginning to end;
neither does it bring tears to the spectators' eyes throughout its length. But it has
its laughter, it has its tears, and also has some of the prettiest pieces of legitimate
acting that Charlie Chaplin has ever presented during his picture career. It is
precisely eighteen weeks since I first set down for the benefit of the readers of the

Instead of the derby hat flying onto his head, it seems to roll of its own accord up
Robert's arm. In reality, Robert learned to roll the hat down his arm and the film
was reversed—of course, he had to think and act backward, beginning the
movement at the end with his eyes looking upward at the hat before he rolled it

undercranked some of the action at twenty-two frames per second, an

Trench life is not idealised – the Tramp is shown sleeping in a trench full of water
and as scared to go over the top – but the overall effect is of a brave man doing
his bit. Even the end, when Charlie captures the Kaiser only for it to be revealed
that the film has been a dream all along, reinforces the righteousness of
American participation in the conflict. Shoulder Arms suggests that it should be
the dream of all ...
