I adore this  particular photo, you see how small his hands were, something unique and identifiable in “the tramp”.
Little Jackie was wonderful in his acting under Charlie’s direction.
Something to note, Charlie’s hair is rather flat, not like his usual mass of dark curly hair. I have seen photos of him playing the violin with Jackie looking on, and his hair is also flat.  Makes me wonder if Charlie was getting into his head this particular scene. He would very often have music and musicians (notably the Abe Lyman Orchestra to set the mood for the dance of the rolls.
