Two nice videos. I'm not entirely certain that the link to the first one hasn't been posted here before (possibly by me).

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human
society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and
betrayal. And I was angry. "God", I said,This is terrible! Why don't you do something? God was silent for a moment, then He spoke softly. I have done something, He replied. " I created you".

I have mentioned this Chaplin musical before: had been Broadway-bound in the 80's with well known (well, to me, as a theater-geek!) director and designer, money fell through, and it has since been very successful in Florida. It's a good thing I wasn't a fan back then. I'd have been very disappointed. It is going to be "workshopped" in England next week, and may expand from there, doing more in England. Here is an article about the upcoming workshop:

I've posted the show's site before, but here it is again. This has always seemed to me to be one of the more interestingly conceived shows about CC, and it doesn't attempt to cover his entire life.

Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to the other American members.

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, on the page before this one, I think, that there was going to be a documentary shown in NYC called Who is Norman Lloyd?, as well as a live question and answer with him. Again, most of you know that he appeared in Limelight and is in the Richard Shickel documentary. There was a review of the "Norman Lloyd" movie in the paper the other day (3 out of 4 stars), and it mentioned that he was a "buddy of Chaplin", and that they had played tennis together. Today, there is an article about both him and the movie in the paper (the movie is only playing in one theater in New York, but being in Central NJ, we get reviews, etc. of such things. I don't know if any of this will be picked up and published eleswhere). Again, his friendship and tennis playing with Chaplin were mentioned, along with his performance in Limelight. It mention that they also worked together as producers. Also, Charlie's going into exile. The director of the documentary is quoted as saying. "Try to name someone that Norman hasn't worked with. But if you watch a film on Welles or Chaplin or Hitchcock, there he is...He's one of the few remaining witnesses to so much of this history." (And he was born the year Charlie made his first movie).

I had mainly been aware of Norman Lloyd as a TV actor. He has had quite a career (and life) apart from that.

during my annual thanksgiving chaplin marathon, i included a woman of paris, a film i love more every time i see it. afterwards, i began on city lights. and i know this isn't huge or anything, but the nude statue that the tramp so admires in city lights is the same one that is on top of the fountain in the restaurant where jean shoots himself in AWOP. i'm about 99.999999% sure of this. smile.gif
