Los Angeles, 1914.
A children’s soap box derby held in LA’s Venice neighborhood featured one very peculiar individual, who seemingly sought out the news cameras at the event and then proceeded to grab attention by standing directly in front of them.
The individual's antics eventually tried the patience of one cameraman in particular, who repeatedly shoved the photobombing culprit out of the way, occasionally knocking him completely to the ground.
Who was this "little tramp"?
None other than Charlie Chaplin of course!
The now-legendary silent picture star was only 24 years old at the time and this short film he made was his first appearance as the iconic "Little Tramp" he would later become so well-known for.
Smile today and enjoy this 100-year-old classic!
