Chaplin -- Laugh? They'll Just Pass Out Completely -- December 14, 2023

Motion Picture News, 22-December-1923

"Charles Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks pay respects to John Barrymore as he is making "Beau Brummel" at Warner's Studio." At first, I thought this must have been an old photo from the set of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Chaplin's hat resembles the one the bad guy wore in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde but then I remembered that Barrymore's Beau Brummel wound up old and decrepit. Douglas has his hair curled for The Thief of Bagdad
