A Six-Pack Celebration for Charlie Chaplin
12 June 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Quick-change comedian Carter De Haven announces he will do a few impressions, ruffles through his make-up trunk, and does six amazing impersonations - Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and Jackie Coogan. They are so real, you'd swear De Haven was a chameleon… Due to the presence of the six stars "impersonated" by DeHaven, it is a remarkable find, and is likewise one of the best "short" films of its type.

At first, you're tempted to date the production at 1922, due to the presence of Fairbanks in "Robin Hood" (1922) regalia. Fairbanks and Coogan are the two most obviously in costume, but the latter looks a few years older than he appeared in "The Kid" (1921). The other stars look like they appeared in 1925. Lloyd and Valentino seem to have stepped right out of scenes from "Cobra" (1925) and "The Freshman" (1925). Apparently, this was made to celebrate Charlie Chaplin's completion of "The Gold Rush" (1925). All things considered, that makes sense. It was shown around May 1925, at "Pickfair".

********* Character Studies (5/25) Carter DeHaven ~ Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton
