The following photos from 1924 show Charlie in costume for THE GOLD RUSH & his brother, Sydney, in costume for his film, CHARLEY'S AUNT

These may be the only photos of the brothers in costume for different films.

  1. have you seen "charlie's aunt" yet? it used to be up on YT. it's a shame that it's not more well known, because it is quite funny and has a good pace to keep the farce going. and it's also a shame that syd didn't do more films.

    1. No, I've never seen it. I saw a few of Syd's earlier films on TCM last year when they had a Mack Sennett festival. I was surprised by how much his Gussle character reminded me of a heavier version of the Tramp, but you have to wonder if Syd was influenced by Charlie or vice-versa.
