„A five-reeler, called The Kid

Editorial content. „CHAPLIN‘S FIRST NATIONAL‘S.

      Charlie Chaplin has several more pictures to deliver to the

First National before the expiration of his contract with

them, which calls for an advance of $125,000 per negative.

Recently Chaplin asked that the advance be increased

to $225,000, basing this contention on the allegation that the

cost of production had increased to that extent. The

First National is understood to have replied they could not see

their way clear to do this.

      It is said that Chaplin has already completed a five-reeler,

called The Kid, which he is holding as the first release

he will make through the ,Big Four,‘ and which, it is claimed,

is by far the biggest and best picture he has ever made.“
