Sydney Chaplin the brother to Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin's Brother
...
On June 22, 1885, Hannah Hill married Charles Chaplin (senior).
...
The couple appeared to have success in the music halls, especially Charles with his singing talent. By 1889, they were making a comfortable living. In the spring of that year the couple welcomed their first son, Charles Spencer Chaplin (junior). Better known as Charlie Chaplin, he was born on April 16, 1889. This made Sydney and Charles, Jr. half brothers.
...
In 1890, Sydney attended three different schools, while his stepfather Charles, Sr. made his first trip to America.
...
Charles sang at the Union Square Theatre in New York City.
It was after this New York trip that the comfortable life of Sydney and Charles, Jr. ground slowly to a halt.
...
By 1895, (the year Edna Purviance was born) Hannah, Sydney and Charles, Jr. headed into a nightmarish world of workhouses.
...
In 1897, at the age of twelve, Sydney was sent off on a training ship called the Exmouth, while Charlie and his mother Hannah struggled to make a living in London and lived, at times, in the workhouses.
...
In 1901, Charles Chaplin Sr. died.
...
Unfortunately neither Hannah nor Charlie had received word of Sydney’s illness.
...
At 14, Charlie had to take his mother to the infirmary where she was committed as insane.
By the time Sydney returned, he found his brother Charlie in shambles. Not wanting to be sent to the workhouses again, Charlie was basically living on the streets by day, working odd jobs, and staying out of sight during school hours.
...
If anyone needed the support of a brother, it was Charlie. Without Sydney, Charlie may have never gotten the opportunities that would lead him to such great acclaim in the following years.
...
Sydney Chaplin played a key role in Charlie Chaplin's life and this would be just one of many times Sydney helped.
...
Within weeks on their quest for theatre work, it would be Charlie who would land the first job. But Charlie was very lucky he didn't have to read for the role during that first audition.
Sydney knew that Charlie lacked proper schooling and jumped in to help Charlie memorize his lines for the theatre production.
...
It was a brotherly team effort that got Charlie that first job. Charlie never ever forgot that fact.

...
In early 1908, Sydney was able to get his brother Charlie a job with Karno too. Charlie became successful there as well, but not as popular as his brother Sydney.
...
When Karno needed performers for their American tour in 1910, it was Charlie Chaplin who was sent on that tour, not Sydney.
...
But by 1913, it would be Charlie Chaplin that Karno would lose instead of Sydney.
...
Charlie created quite a name for himself in the States. Charlie was a very hard worker and fine tuned his performances on that American tour, and was so popular, he was sent on a second tour to America.
Charlie Chaplin officially signed with Keystone Studios on September 25, 1913, in Portland, Oregon. He was still on the second American tour with Karno at the time and didn't want to quit until the tour was finished. He performed his last Karno performances at the Empress Theatre in Kansas City in late November of 1913.
...
Charlie was gaining success in the picture business by now and wanted his brother as his business manager.
...
Charlie moved on and signed with Essanay Studios located in Niles, California and Chicago. Charlie would make some of his most inventive films to date at Essanay.
...
By the end of Essanay contract, Charlie and Sydney teamed up again.
...
Charlie was becoming famous and Sydney decided it was a good time to help his brother get a new studio contract.
...
It was Sydney Chaplin who landed Charlie the biggest contract to date for a moving picture actor, or anyone for that matter.
...
Sydney helped Charlie get the First National contract, that give Chaplin ownership of his films and allowed Charlie to build his own studio.
...
Sydney would even co-star with Charlie in a few of the First National films.
...
Sydney, according to Charlie's own book, 'My Autobiography', later help started United Artists, the famed film company founded mainly by Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, D.W. Griffith and Douglas Fairbanks.
...
April 16, was Charlie Chaplin's birthday.
...
Before Sydney's death, Sydney visited Charlie and his family often in Switzerland.
...
Sydney and Charlie were very close, even though at times they seemed to be quite separate.
...
Charlie had the talent, as Sydney always knew, but it was Sydney who helped make that talent pay off.

Today, Sydney Chaplin is bringing Charlie back in a way no one has seen before.
...
These rare films show Charlie Chaplin in color at a time he is most clearly remembered in black and white. We see him directing and just being himself on the movie set. Scenery and costumes appear in full rich color. A treasure, indeed!
Much of the film outtakes we see today of Chaplin at work resulted from Sydney Chaplin carefully keeping outtakes that Charlie had ordered to be burned. Much of the film outtakes we see today of Chaplin at work resulted from Sydney Chaplin carefully keeping outtakes that Charlie had ordered to be burned.
...
Chaplin has gained many new fans today due to these outtakes being packed away by Sydney and Chaplin's longtime cameraman Roland Totheroh.
...
'The Unknown Chaplin' documentaries by Brownlow and Gill, are responsible for much of the renewed interest in Charlie Chaplin.
...
And now Brownlow's 'The Tramp and the Dictator' has brought attention not only to Charlie, but Sydney too.
...
Sydney played such a key role in Charlie Chaplin's life.
...
This was a fact that Charlie Chaplin knew more than anyone .

During Chaplin's days at Keystone, Essanay and Mutual Studios, Chaplin did not own the copyright to those films. Those films fell into many hands over the years and are in many different collections around the world.
All the other films made from 1918 - 1967 under First National, United Artists and his last two British-made films were copyrighted under Chaplin. Today, these films are the property of Roy Export, which is the Chaplin family company started by Charles Chaplin.
...

Chaplin had no control of film material he left. 'Triple Trouble' was created out of some of the unfinished work of Chaplin's and released after he left the studio. Plus, there is a film called 'His Regeneration' which Chaplin did a cameo in as a favor for Essanay Studio head Bronco Billy Anderson, while Chaplin was working at Essanay.
All the Mutual and Essanay films have Edna Purviance's work during her early days with Chaplin starting with 'His Night Out'.

This 1989 Chaplin Centennial Collection was created for Chaplin's 100th Birthday. This videotape collection was released through CBS/FOX Video. These were all the films (except for 1942 'The Gold Rush') that Chaplin re-edited during his time in Europe.
...
This tape has Chaplin narrating before and after each film. A fun opening sequence shows bits from his never released 'How to Make Movies', showing the studio being built in Hollywood and Chaplin out of costume.
The downside to this collection is the fact it is on VHS videotape, which like other media of its day, will not be around at some point. Just something to be aware of if purchasing.
This is a great set to see the differences in how Chaplin edited his work years after their original theatrical release. And to see the differences, the collection listed next is the perfect set to compare it to.

...
This collection was unique in the fact the films included all the parts that Chaplin edited out in his later years. During the time between 1940's - 1970's, Chaplin personally re-edited and restored all his copyrighted films for rerelease. He removed parts he felt didn't suit modern audiences.

I saw a great version of 'Dough and Dynamite' a few years ago with colorful title slides done by Charlie's brother, Sydney Chaplin. (Sydney signed with Keystone for one year, after Charlie left for Essanay in 1915.) At times, TCM also shows some of the early Keystone films.
