Charlie Chaplin behind the camera
Here's screen actor, director, writer and all-around auteur Charlie Chaplin standing behind the camera sometime in the 1920s. (Note the cone-shaped horn in his hand so he can shout instructions.) This photo was released in 2007, when a historic camera belonging to Chaplin -- maybe one of the two seen here! -- was up for auction. The Bell and Howell 2709 camera was used to film many of Chaplin's great silent films, including The Kid (1921) and The Gold Rush (1925).
