Charlie Chaplin: Photoshop fun

It's a Sunday afternoon...feeling kinda lazy...I grabbed a coffee and was reading about the early days of Hollywood. Been on this "old school" kick as of late...watchin alot of Stooges, Buster Keaton, Laurel & Hardy, and Marx Bros.
My friend and fellow old-Hollywood historian buff, Kevin Micallef, loaned me some of his really cool DVD's on the silent era comedians and it's been an education.

Chaplin is Kevin's all time hero, and after rewatching " the Great Dictator", he rightly should be. Amazing film! Here's a Chaplin photoshop tribute done in Photoshop using a neat effect that constructs the contrast of the photo by using 1000's of tiny happy-faces! Perfect idea to use for a vaudville king I thought!


BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW: W.C.Fields and Charlie Chaplin, the 2 biggest ( and wealthiest) vaudeville stars of their time, both died on Xmas day. Both passed away in 1946 and 1977 respectively.

Hey Darin, Love the photos!! Nicely done. I really enjoy talking about those "vaudville" greats with you...we need another "dude night" focusing on the classics. Cheers bud!
