Gotta say that I'm definitely going to seek out Pay Day (1922) for my home video collection now.
Open, general discussion of silent films, personalities and history.
Not to take anything away from the great Charlie, of course, but I'm guessing that the "meme" appeared, in one way or the other, in comic strips and vaudeville years before PAY DAY. But Chaplin's take on it remains very funny to this day, to be sure.
