‘A Night Out’ (1)

nightouttwo  Charlie Chaplin loved shooting outdoors, and he scouted his film locations himself. While shooting in Niles Calif. in 1915, he traveled up to Oakland to film scenes for ‘A Night Out’. In a once ritzy apartment area near Lake Merritt, the two buildings he filmed in front of still exist. The plot is simple, Chaplin, and Ben Turpin go out for a night on the town, get drunk, and fall down a lot. That’s all you really have to know. (Thumbnail image)
