Boxing with Kid McCoy, March 1924

McCoy, center, referees a match between Charlie & Mack Swain, who is dressed in his costume for The Gold Rush.
Autographed photo. Charlie's inscription reads: "To One X Champ From Another X Champ. Charlie Chaplin"
More photos here.


  1. Wow, here we can really see the difference in size between Charlie and Mack (since CC doesn't have his huge tramp clothes on). Also, is it me or is the last photo not very becoming to him? He's about 35 here? Looks way older... Love the spats with the bathing suit Charlot!!

    1. I've always thought the last one was strange. These photos as a whole are a bit odd but funny. Yes, he was on the cusp of 35 here.
