Happy Birthday, Charlie


Charlie Chaplin was born on this day in 1889.

I've already written quite a bit about Chaplin—here, here, here and here. So how about a movie instead?

Since Katie-Bar-The-Door and I are going to see The Gold Rush tomorrow with live musical accompaniment by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, I'll show that to you, courtesy of the Internet Movie Database.

Enjoy.

Chuck to his friends.


Of course, the young ladies called him Uncle Chuck. . . .



Not that anything was ever proved.

Hey, that socialist Obama helped my ex-wife score a sizable refund, despite not having any sizable bill.

Sweet!
