A Dog's Life, the 1918 Charlie Chaplin silent screwball comedy ("The one and only Charles Chaplin in his first million dollar picture"; "His signature"; "A First National Attraction") starring Charlie Chaplin , Edna Purviance, Syd Chaplin, Henry Bergman, and Charles Reisner. Note that one of the lobby cards refers to the dog as "Jack", but the IMDb lists him as being billed as "Scraps", and that he is played by "Mut". If anyone knows more about this dog and his billing, please e-mail us and we will post it here. Note that Chaplin was so incredibly popular in 1918, that First National had to pay him a million dollars per movie to lure him away from his previous studio (which was a staggering amount of money in 1918)! Naturally, they wanted to get some advertising value out of their massive expenditure, so they advertised the movie as "His First Million Dollar Comedy"
