Winter Warmers: How Chaplin did it?


Lots of talk in the news regarding fuel poverty. One would like to say this is nothing new. As Charlie Chaplin shows there are lots of ways to keep warm over the cold winter months. Got a bog cooker/oven? Keep close to it and spend time in the kitchen, no need to turn on the central heating. Did he really need his Kane sat down?.
 

I have always been a fan of silent movies, more so the Marx brothers but some of the first ones I watched were of Charlie Chaplin. Never realized until recently he was British. I guess that's another fine export from out shores. Remarkable photo of him stripped of his movie attire and makeup. This was taken from 1916.
