By the way, while in general the Keystones may be primitive (if you'll pardon that harsh word), but I still find Kid Auto Races to be remarkably modern and funny.
Parts of The Circus are very funny, but in a calculated way- and the parts where his character is trying to "be funny" are excruciating in their un-funniness (to me at least)
Thank you! I feel the same way about The Circus. There's something about this film that makes me forget what I've seen just a few hours later - I think my brain is actively trying to flush it from my memory. And I'm no Chaplin hater.
