The Effeminate Charles Chaplin
12 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Dressing up in drag was not unusual for Chaplin. He revisited this experience in 'A Woman', and some of his physical expressions were quite effeminate at times. It seems as though Keystone were making Chaplin act for his money rather than let him do his own thing in 'The Masquerader'.
