Charlie with a young Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.


From: https://www.facebook.com/DouglasFairbanksJr

Charlie is painting a mustache on his face--very cute. Doug, Jr. was born on this day in 1909.

  1. This is cute. Didn't Doug Jr actually have a moustache that looked liked this when he was way older? I may be wrong...

    1. Doug, Jr. did have a thin mustache. This mustache looks sort of Kaiser-ish.

  2. When I was an apprentice in summer stock way back in 1978, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. was the star of one of the shows. He was extremely nice and still exceptionally handsome. I remember having a brief talk with him about Charlie Chaplin--still can't quite believe that happened!

    1. I would still be pinching myself as well! You can consider this encounter your "one degree of separation" from Charlie since you had a conversation with someone who actually knew him personally. Plus Doug, Jr. was also married to Joan Crawford!

    2. Yes, I much prefer this than six degrees of Kevin Bacon. :)
