Third Liberty Loan Tour


In the Spring of 1918 Chaplin spent one month touring the southern U.S. selling Liberty Bonds. This series provides an in-depth look at several of the tour stops, providing a play by play of events, as well as uncovering the physical and mental toll the tour had on Chaplin. The series also gives us a peak into Charlie Chaplin-mania, which was at its height in 1918. He was hunted, swarmed, and mobbed everywhere he went.
