Summary
Presents the life of silent film star Eric Campbell, who appeared in many of Charlie Chaplin's films as a villain. Follows the life of the Scottish actor from Dunoon in Scotland, through his years in the music halls, to his short but intense film career and the bizarre final six months of his life before he was killed in an automobile accident in December 1917
