Chaplin & Kelly Similarities

More similarities crop up between Charlie Chaplin and Gene Kelly as I continue my research and the writing of my book.

They both danced.
They both acted
They both directed
They both wrote
They both roller skated
They both were short, Chaplin maybe 5'6" and Kelly 5'7" regardless of what you hear
They were both in great shape
They were both workaholics and when working, all else was unimportant and put aside
Neither of them had any real workout routine, but used their craft to keep them in shape.
They both loved tennis and swam
They both knew the movie business inside out
Neither had many "Close" friends
They were both mainly agnostic
They were both liberal
