I became a dedicated Charlie Chaplin fan after the PBS station in Syracuse, NY ran
a weekly series of his shorts. I was 12 or 13 years old at the time (around 1972 or
3) and found his movies to be so magical. So funny & so sad at the same time.
I actually wrote him fan letters but never received a reply. My first very
favorites were Dough & Dynamite and The Bank. I, too, find the machine feeding
scene in Modern Times very funny. City Lights is probably my favorite feature length
film. I had an opportunity to see Carl Davis conducting a live orchestra of the
soundtrack that Charlie wrote for City Lights-very special. I would love to see his
short films again-some of the video tapes
out there are horrendous-avoid Madacy tapes at all costs.
Thanks so much for the webpage.
