Charlie filmed his Essanay boxing comedy The Champion (1915) on location in Niles, CA. It will be featured Dec. 3 at the SF Silent Film Festival Day of Silents event. http://www.silentfilm.org/homepage/gallery/save-the-date
The film's restoration was sponsored by the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum. http://nilesfilmmuseum.org/
You can read about Charlie filming in Niles at this post below. One surprise, you can see a portion of the town baseball field bleachers in the back of one scene.
Interact with your favorite SCM authors, producers, directors, historians, archivists and silent comedy savants. Or just read along. Whatever.
