    Wow, that actually looks a lot more like Robert Downey Jr. than I ever thought Downey looked like Chaplin in “Chaplin”

    I agree with Emma. And that is not meant in a derogatory way. He did claim I believe to have Jewish roots. I wonder if that had anything to do with how rotten he was later treated by Hollywood and America.

      In fact, Hitler claimed Chaplin had Jewish roots, and Chaplin always denied it –

      I would not be one bit surprised. I’m glad that if he was a Jew, he was proud of it. America also claimed he was communist. What a bull time that was.

    I believe this is Chaplin upon completion of THE KID, which would make it 1920, not 1916 –

      Correction: It was upon completion of A DOG’S LIFE, which would make it 1918 –
