 Charles Chaplin (A.K.A Charlie Chaplin) was an actor. Mr. Bean is a character. It is hard to compare a single character to the entire filmography of an actor.

I would have made the Poll about The Tramp (Charles Chaplin is more known character) and Mr. Bean. Or about Charles Chaplin and Rowan Atkinson.

Not about Charlie Chaplin and Mr. Bean

How about  Benny Hill as an in-betweener?

If you had used Blackadder instead of Mr Bean I would have doubted

I agree with cinephile that naming one actor with a real name and another with a character name is a tad confusing, although there persists a problem to name a plethora of Chaplin's characters, including the Tramp just that - Charlie Chaplin. 

Also... What a hard choice for me, to be honest. I love both.

And I agree with you and cinephile.
The title should be Chaplin vs. Atkinson
or their most known for roles.
The Tramp vs. Mr.Bean

Charlie Chaplin vs. Buster Keaton would have been more understandable.

I'm using the names they are famous for. (By what they are widely known.)

I'm not comparing a person with a character, if you click on the images, you can see I've mentioned their real/full name.

I don't see Chaplin as an actor, nor Bean as a character. I see them as an icon.

I hope y'all understand.

Even so, I think the title would be better as Charlie Chaplin vs. Rowan Atkinson to avoid any confusion.

I'd like to see Mr. Bean as The Great Dictator.

Peter, I am actually curious what could have been if that idea came to fruition. Rowan Atkinson can handle both roles from the original movie like a champ and put a unique spin on them.

I like Atkinson, but Chaplin was more than an actor. He was a director, writer, composer as well. He did the whole shebang.

I think I've seen a very similar scene in one of Charlie Chaplin's films. Does anyone know which one?
