A Chaplin Quickie To Make You Smile

For the Chaplin fans out there, I found this little Chaplin gem on You Tube. It's a clip of a short comedy done in 1915 by Essanay, entitled "A Woman." (Chaplin's in drag!)

Charlie has stuck a pin cushion up his shirt to create a "bust," which the old guy in the clip keeps sticking himself on.

Btw, the pretty blonde lady who introduces Charlie as her "college chum," is Edna Purviance. She was Charlie's leading lady (and romantic interest) during these early years of his career.

The person who posted this clip has set it to Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing."

Check it out! It great!
