    The footage of it in MJ's private home videos aren't from the music video. The shots show him standing perfectly still (minus moving his mouth in the caricature Chaplin fashion), exactly what you would do for the photoshoot. Likely just footage taken during the photoshoot.

    Love the dancing in it. MJ's best ever. Love the story and the effects. But it is too childish. It could have been much better.

    I know there are photos. - One picture is in the HIStory booklet isn't it?

    But I have just never heard about a short film being shoot.

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

    I thought Sony cancelled the promotion of Smile being released. Never heard of the Chaplin family fighting it.

    Maybe the video for it. Sony could have still release the single on radio and CD singles and vinyls to stores if they wanted.

    There is no music video for Smile, that is fan fiction.

    I remember reading some interview where Michael was suprised to hear that they cancelled the Smile single. He was like: They cancelled it? when the interviewer mentioned it. It was in some fan magazine and somebody posted it here. I'm 90% sure that I'm not making that up.

    I think that some of MJ’s short films deserve the top position equally.

    Also, apart from some ‘Smile’ (promo) singles that were issued at that time (mostly 12’’) nothing else exists.
