1. Charlie Chaplin took the silent film era by storm in 1914 when his first film, “Making a Living” debuted on February 2.
He was one of the most iconic figures to fashion the toothbrush mustache when he first added it to his costume for his Mack Sennett silent comedies beginning in 1914. He claimed that the mustache - depicted here in a beautiful photograph courtesy of NYPL’s Billy Rose Theater Collection - added to his comical appearance while still allowing the audience to still see his expressions. 
Happy Mustache Monday!
