The Kid Should See This

Charlie Chaplin’s dinner roll dance from The Gold Rush (1925)

This is Charlie Chaplin performing one of the most memorable moments in film history: the dinner roll dance, or table ballet, from the silent comedy classic The Gold Rush (1925).

There are more mimed performances and more classic physical comedy videos in the archives, including Lucy, Ethel, and that conveyor belt of chocolates, and Chico Marx playing the piano (with an apple).
