A Dog’s Life © Roy Export SAS The films that Chaplin made in his own studio were a marked advance on any comedies previously made in Hollywood. They were generally longer - as much as 45 minutes, whereas few comedies before that time went beyond half an hour - and much more sophisticated in staging and structure. The first was A Dog’s Life (1918), for which Chaplin found an excellent co-star, in the person of a charming mongrel dog, Scraps, whose battle for survival with the other dogs of the quarter is satirically compared with Charlie the Tramp’s own struggle for a place in society.
