US advertisement for Shoulder Arms

Shoulder Arms pruived[wrang wird or uiss o Scots] tae be Chaplin's maist faur ben film, critically an commercially, up tae that pynt. A review in the 21 October 1918 New York Times wis teepical:


"'The fool's funny,' was the chuckling observation of one of those who saw Charlie Chaplin's new film. Shoulder Arms, at the Strand yesterday — and, apparently, that's the way everybody felt. There have been learned discussions as to whether Chaplin's comedy is low or high, artistic or crude, but no one can deny that when he impersonates a screen fool he is funny. Most of those who go to find fault with him remain to laugh. They may still find fault, but they will keep on laughing."
