Syd Chaplin Article
Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

It sure must have been a slow news week when the usually industrious editors at MOTION PICTURE MAGAZINE decided to publish this piece about Sydney Chaplin (1885 1965), businessman, aviator, actor,(thirty-four films between 1914 and 1928) and occasional business partner to his younger super-star brother, Charlie:

"Charlie Chaplin is small and thin. Sidney is tall and husky. Charlie is dark, with curly hair like a boy. His big brother is light, and looks like a big lumberman. Here is contrast indeed. Their natures are as different as the natures of a flee and a bee. To see them together one would not take them brothers..."

Three years after this article was published, Syd Chaplin would started the first domestic airline company in the United States: The Syd Chaplin Airline, Co., which he saw fit to close when the U.S. government saw fit to regulate pilots and all commercial flight ventures.
