Ad for Triple Trouble, Moving Picture World, August 1918

This "new" comedy was comprised of unused footage from Police, Work & an abandoned film, Life.  Chaplin left Essanay in 1916 so this was nothing more than an attempt by his former employers to cash in on the Chaplin name .

Charlie himself retaliated with his own ads stating that the only "new" Chaplin releases are the ones distributed by First National with his signature on them.
