Today is Charlie Chaplin’s birthday; my full biographical article on him is here. In celebration of the day, TCM is showing several of his films, this morning. The line up is:

6am: Pay Day

6:30am: The Kid

7:30am: A Woman of Paris

9am: City Lights

Tune in! Tune in now!

To find out more about  the history of vaudeville, consult No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and wherever nutty books are sold. And don’t miss Chain of Fools: Silent Comedy and Its Legacies from Nickelodeons to Youtube, to be released in September, 2012.



  1. Chaplin is my favorite. Discovered him in The Gold Rush back in college. I’ve since begun to explore more silent film masters like Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Lon Chaney.
