I have basically decided to stop doing the Films About Women series for the time being, and in its place I am focusing on short series on Charlie Chaplin.
I will be watching films by Charlie Chaplin and posting short reviews and reflections on his films.
George Bernard Shaw once said that Charlie Chaplin was the only genius that cinema ever produced. That’s no longer true (if it ever was) but Charlie Chaplin is an incredibly influential performer and director. So, in his honor, I will be watching some of his films and talking about them.
Plus, when I was young, Sesame Street used the character of The Tramp in some of their skits.
