Discovering Chaplin

I’m poking my head out just to mention that something exciting happened to me this weekend. For the first time in 8 years my Chaplin (and Chaplin-related) books are now together in the same place. For as long as I can remember, they have been scattered in 3 or 4 different places in my house. So it’s nice to have them (most of them) in one bookcase. There are still a handful that I couldn’t fit. Anyway, that’s all. I’ll go back behind the blog curtain now.



  1. May I ask which book is placed on the left of Barry Anthony's book? And which one is placed between Epstein's and Brownlow's books?As we're planning to move away very soon, my wife remembers the time when my Chaplin library could be moved inside two or three cardboards boxes. Now it requires at least 30…

  2. Yes, I'm Dominique. Sorry for having absentmindely forgotten to ID myself!I thought Dixon's book was only available as an e-book.Is there any book(s) about CC you've been willing to read for years but couldn't find (or found too expensive) on the net?D.

  3. Hi JessGreat photo and comments. I recognise a lot of the titles. Love the figures, too. Really enjoying Charlie's year (1936). Kind regards, John

  4. Hidden inside of a cake? Kind of like the scene in The Great Dictator. I'm sure you have this, too, but years ago, my parents got me a snow globe with the CC figurine from The Gold Rush. I keep it on my desk at work.Tom K

  5. Thanks, Dominique! I was hoping you would know more about the "féves." By the way, did you get my email about the books? I only ask because I've been having problems with my emails. Some have not reached their recipients, including an important one to my tax person! I wanted to make sure. I know you're in the middle of a move.
