Pay Day Soundtrack - Now Online

Pay Day (1922) was Chaplin’s last two-reeler, and casts him in an unfamiliar role, as a working man and hen-pecked husband. It proved one of his most trouble-free productions and shooting was completed in one month.

Fifty years after the film’s initial release, Chaplin returned to Pay Day in 1972 to compose a musical score with the help of his music associate Eric James. In one of the film’s memorable scenes, Charlie and his brother Sydney Chaplin sing “Sweet Adeline” with a group of drunks. Based on correspondence in the Chaplin archives, we know that it was of particular importance that this traditional tune be quoted in the film’s music track - Chaplin’s own mother used to sing it to him when he was very young.

In the coming days, we’ll publish a new track from the original soundtrack once a day on Youtube so you can listen from anywhere! Subscribe to our Youtube channel and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with our daily posts.
