His Night Out (Re-issue, 1935)

Charlie Chaplin’s popularity as a silent film star extended to the era of sound film. In the 1930s, audiences who were accustomed to sound still clamored to see silent pictures in which he starred.  The New York–based “King of Comedy Corp,” previously named Exhibitors Pictures Corporation, capitalized on this phenomenon by re-issuing ten Chaplin films originally produced for the Essanay Film Manufacturing Company. His Night Out was one of these re-issued films with its title changed from the original A Night Out (1915)—re-edited with new subtitles,  a music score,  and added sound effects.
