The inclusion of a dog as his companion, and the various interconnecting scenes all go to prove Chaplin's standing as the premier artist in the movie-medium at this time. It's like a stage play, but too action-packed for that. It's like an adventure story but it's too funny for that. It's like a comedy but it's too true-to-life for that. It's in a class all it's own. Cinema is the only single word for its macabre, bizarre, and romantic spirit.
