    I remember the first time that I saw this photo I did a double take! That is Charlie Chaplin? And I understood that is who he truly was and that the shadow on the wall behind him, looming large was the silhouette of his created character and his fame. It is an exceptional photograph. I don’t think that anyone captured him as well, save maybe Avedon (http://www.antiqbook.com/boox/lop/017958.shtml) .

    What an handsome man Charles Chaplin was.
    A well developed body and toned mind, not to mention a sure, steady sort of face.
    His treatment, it goes without saying, was nothing short of a disgrace.
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

    Am I the only one who finds Chaplin, with his smile and the lighting and such being the way it is, slightly demonic looking in this photograph?
