The Star Boarder

The Star Boarder is a 1914 American short comedy film starring Charlie Chaplin.

The film is also known as The Landlady’s Pet, its 1918 American reissue title.[1]


Chaplin is the favorite of his landlady, and the other boarders are jealous.



Like many American films of the time, The Star Boarder was subject to restrictions and cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors required, when the film was submitted for review for its 1918 reissue as The Landlady’s Pet, cuts of Chaplin thumbing his nose and the scene of Chaplin inflating his trousers and looking into them.[2]
