Ma Hogan's New Boarder was a 1915 film directed by Raymond Longford starring Charlie Chaplin impersonator Charles Evans.[5] In the movie the lead "displays his antics and mannerisms."[6]

It was one of Longford's few films not to feature Lottie Lyell and is considered a lost film.[7]

Reception[edit]

Theatre managers offered to "supply cotton and buttons free to all patrons who damage them" during screenings of the film."[8]

The Motion Picture News said that Charles Evans "gave a really clever impersonation of Charles Chaplin" but that "the production was too long to be anything more than ordinary."[9]
