Charlie Chaplin's last four Mutual-Chaplin Specials are among his finest work. While each of the preceding Mutual comedies took approximately one month each to make, Chaplin took more time with the last four (ten months in total), which extended his twelve-month contract period to approximately eighteen months. For EASY STREET, his ninth film for Mutual and the most famous of the twelve, Chaplin ordered the first of the T-shaped street sets to be built that he would consistently utilize to provide a perfect backdrop to his comedy. The look and feel of EASY STREET evoke the South London of his childhood (the name EASY STREET suggests "East Street," the street of Chaplin's birthplace). However, life on EASY STREET is anything but.

Here we have Chaplin at his most lithe and acrobatic. There's plenty of gratuitous mob violence, domestic skirmishes, scenes of police brutality and amazingly choreographed fight scenes. Hilarious!

There's seemingly nothing better than watching Easy Street on a Saturday AM. Well, perhaps there is ... a Friday PM works swimmingly, too.

love charlie, he can do no wrong !!
