They are all impressive, but the Charlie Chaplin one is my favourite, I guess because I didn't realise it was a trick.

Well that put a downer on me, as i thought in them days, special effects were almost non-existent, and these guys were so brave hanging high up like that.

Mind you there must have been many a real dangerous stunt filmed, like being on moving transport, on trains, cars and on horses.

Tell me this famous stunt was real, please.....
A side of building front falling down on said stooge, and being saved as it landed on stooge through an open window, so stooge did not have a scratch.

Seen that done in quite a few silent movies. Very brave stuff.
