The Masquerader (1914) - Charlie (Charles) Chaplin
This is a unique Chaplin film - you get to see him in 3 different characters. Charles Chaplin sans mustache & tramp costume, Charlie “the tramp” playing an actor & dressed as a woman, and a very attractive one at that.
I love this short so much

Anna’s first role was in a movie called The Red Lantern when she was 14 years old. By 17, she had her first lead role in The Toll of the Sea. In 1928, Wong, limited by anti-Chinese prejudice, headed to Europe where she appeared in movie as well as on the stage. She returned to the U.S. in 1930 to star in such movies as Daughter of Fu Manchu, but continued to work on Broadway and in Europe.
