You must have read my thoughts, I'm gearing up for a Chaplin marathon this weekend. I've got The Kid, The Gold Rush, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, Limelight, and lots of chips and root beer.
Unfortunately cinephiles seem to be in short supply round these parts, and thus I will be by myself. :(

aww, that's too bad! i always make sure to have at least a couple people on back-up. everyone deserves someone special to watch chaplin films with!

modern times is my favorite! but hey, where's city lights on your marathon list?!!!

Have you seen The Circus Nico? It's so great but I've never found anyone to talk about it with.

Kurdt, come to Tucson and I will watch all of them with you! I LOVE CHAPLIN AND ROOTBEER!

I love Chaplin! So much emotion in facial expressions. Love it. Clara Bow is my favorite silent film girl. Chaplin has to be my favorite man.

Well, those were the ones I grabbed from this store I found downtown that incredibly had what looked like the whole Chaplin collection. I'll have to grab City lights if I can find the store again.

A girl who likes silent movies and rootbeer? Sounds too good to be true!

Wooo! I've seen most Chaplin movies, but I can barely remember any of them :(

Moll- If Kurdt can't make it, I will gladly take his root beer and seat cushion!

This is a blog of treasures! Hooray for Chaplin! There is a special place in my heart for "Modern Times". My Humanities teacher in highschool spent a week on that movie. How that podunk town lucked out on having a teacher with taste, I'll never know.
