Mystery Phoney Chaplin Still

Postby Cole Johnson » Thu Jan 20, 2011 2:07 pm

Hello, Silent Comedy fans----Here's a challenge for you. Who is this Chaplin imitator? You'll notice this one was filmed at the same structure as in the real Chaplin's AT THE SEASIDE. ----Cole J.

I was looking for another thread when I came across this. It looks like Eugene Leyman as the baby, but the Charlie seems to me to be a Charlene. Is that William Gillespie at the far left? Anyone want to take another stab at this?

From blowing the picture up it's a man dressed as Chaplin, the hands are a give-a-way. Looks a lot like Harry Mann. He also seems to be wearing a pinky ring on his right hand, if that is any sort of clue.

Are you referring to Chaplin's comedy BY THE SEA?
