Chaplin’s movies’ posters.
Sunnyside, 1919 (dir. Charles Chaplin)
A DOG’S LIFE
Charlie and Scraps catch some sleep in the only place available - an alley.
My very favorite scene from my very favorite Charlie Chaplin film. This scene is what hooked me on this incredible artisitic genius, almost 3 years and still so much to learn about him.
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.
February 5, 1919 — Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith join forces to create United Artists.
United Artists is formed - the big studios were threatening to combine into on big super power and cut out the competition - Artists such as these would have had no say in how much they could make.
Charlie runs across the set of City Lights.
This scene with Charlie and and his son in a Doss (shelter) house - this is after he rescues him and is afraid to go back to their home for fear of being found.
You think that Charlie is taking great care to cover his son but then he surprises you by turning over and taking the blanket but he does not even use it for himself.
BY THE SEA - 1915
Another classic, he is eating a banana he back kicks the peel on the wrong foot and then promptly falls on his ass…he did it to himself :)
Another interesting thing is that when he fell he would instinctively pull his 2 legs up to lessen the impact on his tail bone and jacking his back up
If you look at the windows you can the reflection of people watching him shoot this film.
