the old hollywood fandom:
Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks
Love this photo - taken in 1917, Mary Pickford was in production for “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms”. If you look closely you can see Charlie Chaplin ever so lightly leaning his fingers against the truck.
At this time in Hollywood they were considered Hollywood Royalty.
This photo is just too adorable. I know half the time Mary and Charlie never got along but the three just look so excited for this photo.
February 5, 1919 — Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith join forces to create United Artists.
Clip top left - interesting as it shows all 4 take turns signing their respective contracts.
These gifs are the best
The end gif though. Charlie ever the center of attention.
"The Three Musketeers" (1921)
A silent adaptation of the Dumas novel with Leon Barry as Athos, George Siegmann as Porthos, Douglas Fairbanks as d’Artagnan and Eugene Pallette as Aramis.
Pallette is best known as Friar Tuck from “The Adventures of Robin Hood”.
Charlie photographed during production of “The Cure”

In the end his bath suit wasn’t striped (if these things on it are stripes), but fully black/grey.
He wore a striped in “The Cure” but did wear solid black/grey in “The Adventurer”
I love that scene so much! That look on his face fits so well
