THE MASQUERADER - 100th Anniversary

August 27th 1914 Keystone…

Keystone Charlie was quite the player…it took the lovely Edna to bring him down a notch and add an air of romance to his portrayal of “the tramp” but don’t get me wrong his Keystone’s are funny as hell as he chases every thing in a skirt even then he could be charming….

Watch him in the top gif look right into the camera with those lovely blue eyes of  his (sorry I went fan girl for an instant :)

The Masquerader (1914) - Charlie (Charles) Chaplin

Released 100 Years ago today August 27th 1914

If you get a chance I would recommend this film just for the significance of seeing Charlie play 3 different characters,  also to see inside Keystone studios.

Interesting thing about this film is you see him in regular clothes as Charles Chaplin, Charlie “the tramp” & as an attractive woman.

Part 1 - Arrives at the Keystone Studio, next to him is Mabel Normand, in the dressing room with Roscoe Arbuckle you seem him transform into the tramp.

Part 2- As “the tramp”

He plays an actor who can’t keep his mind on his job so is told to hit the bricks. This was funny..

Part 3  After losing “his” job he comes back to apply for the position of an actress. 

The first time I seen this film I was taken aback when I realized this attractive woman was in fact Charlie complete with kiss curl and beauty mark
