Rather a long video [google.com]- kind of hard to see at some points, but otherwise cute.

Here's the YouTube link to the video, so you can play it full screen...

Charlie Chaplin Google Doodle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NGSU2PM9dA [youtube.com]

For me, it's a well meaning homage that's ultimately disappointing. I've seen Charlie Chaplin, and that Google Doodle is not Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin would have you laughing out loud.

A much greater tribute, I feel, would be for Google to clean out some of the chopped up versions of Chaplin films on YouTube and come up with a system to label those which are authentic and intact... and perhaps also come up with an indexing system so you can find those.

I should add that silent comedy doesn't play that well on home video... it works much better on a large screen in a movie theatre with the audience sharing the laughter. I like Chaplin's shorts much better than his features. Of the features, The Golden Rush is my favorite.
