Charlie Chaplin is an American silent film actor. He is shaking as seen from behind, seeming to sob at his wife's desertion, but is actually shaking a cocktail as seen from another camera angle. Chaplin introduces confusion and identification of the small form at its source. Specifically, a small difference in angle shows a huge difference in situation. The law of index is present throughout burlesque in Chaplin's work to make a slight difference in gesture create a huge difference in laughter. Chaplin's skill uses least difference in action to maximum difference between situations to make viewers be moved deeply and laugh uproariously.
