The Pilgrim

The Pilgrim, Chaplin's last released film for First National , was released on February 23, 1923. This is an excellent must see film that combines much laughter with great location work. One of my all-time-favorite Chaplin film scenes is the tea party scene where the horrible kid, played by Dinky Dean (Riesner), totally puts the screws to Charlie & Sydney. The film is worth seeing just for this horribly amusing scene. Want to know more about Dean Rieser? Check out the must read article about him in the Winter 1997 issue of Limelight.
