Original Charlie Chaplin Movie Poster "Charlot Fiance (A Jitney Elopement)" 1915

More Views


A Jitney Elopement was Charlie Chaplin's fifth film for Essanay Films. It starred Chaplin and Edna Purviance as lovers, with Purviance wanting Chaplin to take her away from an arranged marriage her father (played by Fred Goodwins) had planned for her. Chaplin does take her away in a jitney, a type of share taxi popular in the US between 1914 and 1916. Most of the film was made in San Francisco and includes scenes of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and the large windmills still on the park's west side. Purviance's father wants her to marry wealthy Count Chloride de Lime. Chaplin, Purviance's true love, impersonates the Count at dinner.
