Tillie's Punctured Romance

Last updated

Tillie's Punctured Romance is the name of two early comedy films:

<i>Tillies Punctured Romance</i> (1914 film) 1914 film by Mack Sennett

Tillie's Punctured Romance is a 1914 American silent comedy film directed by Mack Sennett and starring Marie Dressler, Mabel Normand, Charlie Chaplin, and the Keystone Cops. The picture was the first feature-length motion picture produced by the Keystone Film Company, and is the only one featuring Chaplin.

<i>Tillies Punctured Romance</i> (1928 film) 1928 film by A. Edward Sutherland

Tillie's Punctured Romance is a lost 1928 American silent circus comedy film starring W. C. Fields as a ringmaster and Louise Fazenda as a runaway. Written by Monte Brice and Keene Thompson and directed by A. Edward Sutherland, this movie has nothing to do with the revered 1914 Charles Chaplin film aside from sharing the same title. However, Chester Conklin and Mack Swain appear in both films.
