Scottish actor Eric Campbell was arguably the most important member of Charlie Chaplin’s early ensemble—the towering, glowering giant who proved a memorable nemesis to the Tramp in the eleven shorts they made together. CHAPLIN’S GOLIATH is a tribute to this unsung character actor whose life was cut tragically short but who left a lasting imprint on silent screen comedy.
