The Essanay-Chaplin Revue of 1916 -- December 3, 2016

Moving Picture World, 09-December-1916
When Charlie Chaplin left Essanay to make films for Mutual, Essanay wanted to get all the profit it could from Chaplin's movies.  In order to exploit their inventory, they edited "The Tramp," "A Night Out" and "His New Job" together into The Essanay-Chaplin Revue of 1916.  Chaplin was not pleased.
