  2. Renton47's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    Being that I am a sucker for the conflation of humans and animals this pretty much hit the sweet spot for me. Much love to little Scraps, may he have a long and illustrious career. For a seminal early work it is not difficult to see why Chaplin succeeded, truly a democratic figure and talented performer.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    Encore un chef-d'oeuvre du grand Chaplin qui, malgre la brièveté du film (32 minutes) reste une production essentielle de l'époque... www.cinefiches.com

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    A great Chaplin short, and undeniably the inspiration for his later The Kid as it mines similar emotional territories. I think this short is up there with The Rink and The Immigrant as my personal favs of his work, although this one maybe not as innovative as some of his others. Just a solid Chaplin effort with his trademark mix of comedy/pathos. 4.5 stars

  7. msmichel's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    Chaplin's first short for First National Pictures was one of his most iconic portrayals of the little tramp. Nearing the century mark this playful short is still often hilarious and touching with several wonderful set pieces including the 'puppet' sequence with two petty thieves. Wonderful.

    The Tramp is the best way to ring in the New Yeart!

  11. Michael Harbour's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    A routine Chaplin short - which makes it better than most other silent shorts.

  12. AKFilmFan's rating of the film A Dog's Life

    A perfect little gem with so many great gags. It's a simple short film by Chaplin but it's so charming from beginning to end.
