Photo from Motion Picture News, 1916

I've never seen this particular shot before. It appears to be from the Hartsook session of c. 1915. Charlie is doing his famous gag where he turns his hat sideways to look like Napoleon (he was still doing this as an old man).

On this day 100 years ago...

Chaplin signed a one-year contract with the Keystone studio for $150 per week. The contract was signed September 25th, 1913 in Portland, OR where Chaplin was performing with the Fred Karno Company. Not wanting to quit until the Karno tour was finished, he didn't report to Keystone until the end of November. And the rest, as they say, is history.
