Chaplin was pushing to fulfill his First National contract so he could begin producing for United Artists. I like this image from "Pay Day," which would prove to be Chaplin's last two reel film.

The image in this ad must have been based on the photo in the previous ad for "Pay Day."

Chaplin's previous short film, "The Idle Class," was still in release.

Chaplin did not object when Billy West imitated him, but he sued an actor named Charles Amador, who used the name Charlie Aplin and made movies that closely imitated Chaplin's.

Billy West had already given up his Chaplin imitation and was making comedies using his own character.
