Venice, 1914. A Vanderbilt Junior Cup for boys and their homemade "pushmobiles." In only his second performance on film, the still-unknown Chaplin ambles out onto the track in his new, but surprisingly well-formed, "Little Tramp" costume: bowler hat, baggy pants, bamboo cane, small moustache. Stealing shots with a camera crew, he's just a camera hog with an attitude, getting in the way, and wanting to be photographed.
