You can watch this film all the way through, right here. It features Nikolai Otto as the Tramp character, but it's unclear whether he is supposed to be a clown playing Chaplin, or the actual Little Tramp character himself. He is quite impressive, appears in many scenes, and does not break character when 'backstage', helping the main characters dress and change. There are some great gags involving a cannon, and some good cane tricks. Truly fascinating!

An unknown Chaplin imitator promotes the release of 'Modern Times'. I'd be interested to know who this actor is, and if this impersonator was approved by Chaplin himself? He's really great.
Based on the real life grave robbing of Chaplin's body, this quick humorous sketch with Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, and Bill Murray can be seen here.
