Plot Summary:

Made by Keystone Studios and directed by Henry Lehrman, in it Chaplin plays a spectator at a ‘baby-cart race’ in California. The spectator keeps getting in the way of the camera and interferes with the race, causing great frustration to the public and participants. Chaplin’s tramp character would go on to be one of the most beloved film icons in history. The film was shot at an actual race with Chaplin and his co-stars improvising gags in front of real-life spectators.
