All at Sea

All at Sea

Frame still from All at Sea, http://film.guardian.co.uk/video

The Guardian has published a short section from the 1993 Alistair Cooke home movie All at Sea, of Charlie Chaplin clowing around on a yacht. The film was featured as a long-lost discovery at this year’s Pordenone silent film festival. Curiously, the Guardian makes no mention of the film’s notable provenance. The thirty-second sequence shows Chaplin impersonating Janet Gaynor, Greta Garbo, and the Prince of Wales. Above shows Janet Gaynor, by the way.
