    I've checked with my lawyers and you cannot include it.
    I've checked with my eyes and the duration does not feel very long at all, when you are immersed in his genius

    It's a short film. It doesn't have to be a music video.

    If people want to include Captain E.O they can go right ahead. The MJ police isn't going to show up and arrest them

    That might have been included in my top 10. But since that song is on an album that no longer exist to me. I can not include it.

    I ached over whether to include Another Part Of Me as I love it. It's such a great promo for the tour. I also considered You Rock My World because I actually really like the full-length version & love the cinematography & the whole color scheme, as well as the close-up moment of his feet when he's dancing on the bar counter, & also the dance that's reminiscent of Dangerous live. Nice to see those two included.

    Fair enough. I've just always seen them as separate standalone projects is all.

    Did MJ make a video for Smile? - And if so how finished is it? Is it releaseable?
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    There was a photoshoot but I don't think there was a short film. Doesn't really make sense that they'd shoot a video (in which MJ wanted to dance with Charlie Chaplin through VFX) and only then ask for permission to use Chaplin's image.

    Apparently it had a cease and desist order placed on it, a couple of days before the release.. i think there's a snippet in Private Home Movies! must be near finished

    ''The black-and-white photos of Michael Jackson are remarkable not only as previously unreleased images of one the last half-century's most photographed men. They also reveal much about the pop superstar's abiding impulses: his impish sense of humor, his fealty to yesteryear's master showmen and his concern about his own place in the pop culture firmament.

    Sporting a threadbare black suit, pancake makeup and a miniature brush mustache, Jackson is a doppelgänger for Charlie Chaplin's "Little Tramp" character from 1921's "The Kid." The photos, taken in 1994 by Steve Whitsitt, were originally intended as a companion piece to the Chaplin-inspired video the director-photographer was shooting for "Smile" -- the cover of the silent comedian's famous song that appears on Jackson's "HIStory" album. But when the Chaplin estate issued a cease-and-desist order to stifle "Smile's" release as a video and single, Whitsitt abandoned the photos to his archives.''
