A Jitney Elopement 1915

A Jitney Elopement-Chaplin's fourth Essanay film while at Niles, Ca. was released on April 1, 1915. Most notable were the car chase scenes. They were some of the best of the time. There is one special car chase scene that shows Edna holding Charlie's cane as he commands the car down the road. They truly were functioning as one!
