TCM has made me a happy camper today by showing all Charlie Chaplin movies. I suppose giving him a day with Summer Under the Stars has made up for the fact that they didn’t celebrate the Tramp’s centennial or Charlie’s 125 birthday. All is forgiven…I suppose. image

I have to agree, I was not pleased when they seem to ignore his Centennial but they did a wonderful job, showing early films, shorts, features and documentaries. So hats (derby :) off TCM

don’t rat me out guys, but i called in at work so i could stay home and watch! and i own everything they showed, except the new doc that premiered. it has been years since i last saw the tramp & the dictator doc, or the chaplin today doc on the gold rush. i liked the birth of the tramp doc, though it was pretty much all stories i already knew.  still, nice that it was made to spread chapin awareness and it was well done.  i did see something that took me off guard - did any fans notice that bit where you see what i’m guessing was chaplin bouncing on some kind of trampoline? it looked like the floorwalker set. he bounced madly (sped up, too) for a minute or so and that was it. i’d never seen it before. wtf? i liked that the doc concentrated on his early years - that is my favorite time of his career.

The tramp put up a valiant fight, but it was not meant to be.
Interesting thing about this scene, there is music playing through out the bout, but just as he knocks him out, it is completely silent.  A similar thing happens when he is finally apprehended by policeman towards the end of the film.

yes, chaplin had a wonderful instinct for music and he knew just when to use it beautifully in his films and just as importantly - when NOT to use it at all. it makes such a huge impact on me when at the end of the film, the tramp turns to see the blind girl - who can now see - for the first time since getting out of jail. the music stops abruptly and it’s just silence as he stares at her in disbelief. it would not have had the same intensity, imo, if he had not done that. so moving.

Charlot in One A.M. (1917)

I always wonder if this scene actually appeared in the original version or not!

Don’t mind me, just having some feels over here because he was so incredibly beautiful!!

I don’t think that this appeared in film (??)

No, it didn’t. But in my opinion it might be either a lost sequence or a deleted sequence or only a publicity pose.

Yes…could be a publicity photo. And looks like a cropped photo

Yes, it is a cropped photo, from a lobby card for One A.M.(1916)



i’ve said this before, probably, but every time i watch one a.m., i ALWAYS have to rewind the part where he flips his hat and it lands on the ostrich’s head. it amazes me every time. i wonder how many times he had to do it to get it right. also? it’s HOT. does that make me weird? lol - don’t even care.
