Time and space be damned, I will marry that man.
Chaplain's only fault was having a hard-on for sixteen-year-olds, which isn't so much a fault as an indication that he was alive.
It was the 20s! Everyone was doing it!
Aww frick yeah!
Damn that's a nice clip. Perfect in every way.

In these times, it really would be smart of a comic actor to go back to Chaplin and study him well to learn how to do comedy that really empathizes with the lower classes. And I don't mean Larry the Cable Guy either. Whoever managed to capture that properly would become a big big star.
I must admit I was largely ignorant of Mr. Chaplin, but I can see how he has influenced a lot of performers. It seems like even Jackie Chan has taken a few pages from his book.

I love Chaplin so much, especially City Lights and The Great Dictator.

And the winner of that contest? A young man named Adolf Hitler. Believe it. . . or not!

The part at 1:50 was easily my favorite.
I love this so very much.

Chaplin was brilliant!
He not only starred in his own movies, but produced them, directed them, wrote them, composed for them and had a social and political conscience to boot!

And Moby, but eh.
What immeasurable talent.
I was surprised to learn that there were escalators built that early. Incidentally, the WP article on escalators is a pretty good read.
