Quotes

Claire Bloom, Herself: It was all an evocation of the melancholy and insular world of London that he remembered - and both loved and hated, of course. Because, you know, he'd been in a workhouse, he and his brother Sydney, as children. I mean, they'd been completely destitute. And when you go to that part of Kennington, now, which is now being gentrified, even when I was young, it was pretty dreadful.

What 's the fuss?
20 July 2017 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Charlie Chaplin was a funny guy 100 years ago. He made a few really good silent films, almost all of them dependent on the Little Tramp character. Viewed today they are still funny, though perhaps a bit cruel. I'm not sure he was any funnier than his contemporaries, and Buster Keaton still gives me just as many laughs without the cruelty.

Chaplin failed miserably to make the transition to the talkies, as did many others Laurel and Hardy are the best comedians to make the change, and I think their best work was later in life.

Why the adoration? I don't get it. And why a focus on his Limelight which was surely one of his weakest films.
