Charlie Chaplin Imitator image

As many real fans already know, this is NOT the real Charlie Chaplin, but an imitator. Unfortunately, there are people who don't know the difference. So this imposture's image gets in newspapers, magazines and even book publications.

One way to help correct this, is to help educated people. If you see any publication using this image, let the publishers know, they are not using a real Charlie Chaplin image, but someone dressed as a look-alike.
