  1. I found this site - if I read it correct, Chaplin was in Chicago for only a brief time. https://whitecitycinema.com/2010/09/20/the-secret-history-of-chicago-movies-chaplin-at-essanay/
  2. Comparing comedy of Chaplin and Keaton: The foundation for the two characters is different. Chaplin’s character is mischievous or even roguish: he steals, is short-tempered, starts fights. Charlie instigates much of the action, and while he is graceful Charlie moves through a chaotic world. His flaunting of social convention leaves us wishing we could be so bold. Keaton’s character is one of perseverance: he struggles to make due despite woe-begetting circumstances of bad luck. Buster responds to much of the action in a world where physical laws seem to temporarily suspend their norms
