Two versions of the famous Edward Steichen photo

Look closely and you'll notice that the top photo is a slightly different pose than the more commonly seen version below. Both photos magically depict Chaplin, the handsome movie star, in the foreground and Charlie, the Little Tramp, in a shadow on the wall behind him. These portraits were part of a series taken by Steichen during the summer of 1925 while Charlie was in New York for the premiere of The Gold Rush.
