Charlie Chaplin lived a long full life. Everyday I run across something that has a connection to Charlie Chaplin. I figured I would start this blog to test that theory.

" MODERN TIME" 1936

Charlie trying to do good at his job in a ship yard. Contrary to his name as “the tramp” and what that implies to the average person though in later years it would come to mean a women of ill repute (which I think is ridiculous and sexist).

Many times the tramp was employed or maintaining a sense of respectability, he was not slovenly  and shiftless- actually the expression “tramp” comes from around the turn of the 20th century when men would walk many miles to find word…

Such a cute photo -City Lights -  The tramp takes a job as a street cleaner to help the flower girl, not sure if staged photo or scene that was shot but not in the final film.

Smile, though your heart is aching

This day in Chaplin History - Modern Times -released 77 years ago today -   we say a good bye to “the tramp” 

February 7, 1914 - February 5, 1936

This was the end of the silent era of Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin was the last  hold out.

The Great Dictator 1940

I love the music he composed for this scene.

Charlie Chaplin in this scene of “City Lights” shows the sheer joy of being happy for someone else. When he finally sees her again months later after he gets out of jail  he sees that she now has her sight back and he is ecstatic.

I reblogged a review of “The Immigrant” by http://chaplinreviews.tumblr.com/post/48032797601/the-immigrant and it talked about this scene.

Charlie is on the ship coming over to the U.S., when the film starts you see Charlie bent way over the side and you think he is getting sea sick, when he pops back up he is holding a fish and the look on his face shows he is just so damn pleased with himself….

Modern Times - 1936


To me one of the beauties of Charlie Chaplin was his total unawareness of his surrounding or the pontential dangers that lurked nearby.

"His Trysting Place" Keystone film 1914

If you’ll notice Charlie is sitting in his baby son’s bed and given him  a gun to play with :) Not to worry about the top right where Charlie is holding the baby and he is angry, that is directed at his wife played by Mabel Norman.

Edna Purivance giving Charlie an eyeful:)

I love those expressive eyes of his…one of my favorites parts from his film “The Bond”, amazing in 1918 all a girl had to do was flash a little calf:)
