Trivia: Charlie Chaplin Entered a Chaplin Look-Alike Contest ... and Lost!

Charlie Chaplin once entered a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest, and lost! He didn't even make it to the finals.

In 1915, "Chaplinitis" swept across America and Charlie Chaplin look-alike contests became popular. One such contest was won by a rising young actor/comedian that became quite famous on his own right. His name was Bob Hope.
