Written, directed, produced by and starring Charlie Chaplin, The CureEasy Street and The Immigrant are three of his finest and funniest shorts, released in 1917 by the Mutual Film Corporation. Carl Davis's hilarious and touching scores are played live to screen by OSP. In The Cure, Chaplin plays a drunk who checks into a health spa to dry out, but brings with him a suitcase full of alcohol. The spa's inhabitants are inadvertently intoxicated when an employee throws the bottles into the swimming pool. In action movie Easy Street, the down-and-out Little Tramp takes a job as a policeman, leading to numerous run-ins with the local thieving bully. In The Immigrant, set on a steamer crossing the Atlantic to the United States, Chaplin is accused of theft and falls hopelessly in love with a beautiful young woman.
