Supernatural and rumpled!Chaplin

So, five years late, I've finally watched the first two episodes of Supernatural. I guess the tipping point was nearly everyone I know wanting to talk about it? And I wanted to give it a chance, I really did, but I don't think it's for me. Not trying to pick a fight, just my curmudgeonly observations. )

On a completely unrelated note, I found this photo on tumblr and I just can't get over it. I think it's because we don't see older stars in photos like this: they're either in a film, or it's posed. And while there are plenty of candids of Chaplin, he at least usually has his hair combed and doesn't look like he rolled out of bed. So maybe I do have a little of that People magazine thing in me, because I can't stop looking at it. Sort of like that photo of Welles, Hayworth and a birthday cake.



I mean, honestly. How is that even the same person? And how much do I want to play with his hair?

For still another unusual view of Chaplin, this 1915 film has him in drag, and tricking the two men after him into kissing. He's sort of adorable. The drag part starts around 14:50.
