This, such a romantic gesture, he presses her hand to his heart. That kind of romance is considered so old-fashioned by today’s standards but I’m sure most women would appreciate it once in awhile.
"The Gold Rush" 1925
I think Charlie Chaplin had such beautiful hands, they were some what small for a man, and delicate. He really displayed them so much in his films. as a way to communicate the story.

"A Thief Catcher"
"Charlie Chaplin had a small part at the end of the film as a “Keystone Cop”. the significance of this lies in the fact that Charlie had mentioned during his life that he had played a Keystone Cop but there was no record of it or film to verify this, some probably thought that it was just a a bad memory on his part.
Film historian Paul E. Gierucki discovered a 16mm print of this previously “lost” film in 2010, at a garage sale I believe. In a surprise, it contained Charles Chaplin in a bit part as a Keystone Cop.
I am so glad to see that Charlie was vindicated. He had an extraordinary memory.
I adore this photo of Charlie and Edna
Some great images from “THE KID”
Is it me or does it look like Jackie opens the door (bottom photo) and say “hey pop”? :)
A favorite I have posted quite a few times in the past 3 years.

I just adore this photo of Charlie & Scraps (Mut) for 2 reasons:
1 is because it shows what a great bond they had,
2 because it really shows a close up of his face and the details of his make-up
