Charles Chaplin 1922, Charlie Chaplin in “The Gold Rush” 1925
One of the funniest scenes in the film, Big Jim finally gets out of the teetering cabin, discovers his gold, expressing his joy, he forgets the tramp is still in there, you can see the tramp, still in the cabin, about to fall into the abyss, in a panic yelling “HEY, HEY”!!
If you notice Charlie Chaplin very seldom mouthed words, the way he communicated was purely pantomime.

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
