Carl Davis conductor
Davis Kid Auto Races at Venice
Chaplin A Dog's Life
Chaplin Shoulder Arms
Chaplin's own music accompanies our two main feature films in which Charlie strikes up a friendship with a stray dog that leads him into farcical antics, whilst in Shoulder Arms, hapless Charlie is sent over the top whilst fighting in the First World War. Davis's score to Kid Auto Races at Venice accompanies the first ever film appearance of Chaplin's 'little tramp' character.
