Charlie’s Sunday Quote

Did you know that a time-traveler was spotted in one of Charlie Chaplin’s productions – The Circus. Seriously, a mature woman is seen walking across the camera shot and is seen to be holding what some people claim to be a mobile phone to her ear and this clip has been watched on Youtube, on this clip alone, over a million and a half times. Crazy stuff with plenty of reaction like:

  • Where’s the mobile phone masts?
  • Who’s she talking to?
  • It’s a walkie-talkie!

Crazy stuff, but sure why not see for yourself in the actual footage in the clip at the end of this post and make your own mind up!!!

I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born.” ~ Charlie Chaplin

A Laugh on Tuesday

You’re welcome back again to ‘A Laugh on Tuesday”. I’ve included a clip of Laurel & Hardy taken from Way Out West. A talkie I know, but how else could we hear the hilarity of the two lads in their comical version of ‘The Trail of the Lonesome Pine‘. So tune in and enjoy.

Midweek Matinee

Jay Stowitts with Rex IngramJay Stowitts as the Satyr in The Magician with Great Silent Film Director Rex Ingram, Cannes, 1926

We hope to have news soon about a Dublin screening for Rex Ingram’s The Magician, with its Nenagh-premiered live soundtrack by Eoin Mac Ionmhain. Eoin’s work is stunning, of course, but is not the only composer or performer specializing in silent film. If you’re looking for the thrill of accompanied silents, we’ll bring you occasional news of other acts to look out for.

 The Cabinet of CaligariThe Cabinet of Caligari

Minima are making a big splash on the UK circuit, beloved of everyone from the Guardian to the plaid-sideburned trend-hounds of the Daily Telegraph. As well as old favourites like Nosferatu and Caligari, they bring an eerie touch to some of the silent era’s weirder efforts.

The Seashell & the ClergymanThe Seashell & the Clergyman

One of the more exciting oddities on Minima’s list is The Seashell and the Clergyman. Written by Antonin Artaud, and heavily influenced by Freud and Surrealism, it preceded the eyeball-splitting ant-fest Un Chien Andalou by a whole year.

Un Chien Andalou Un Chien Andalou

The British Board of Film Classification gave The Seashell and the Clergyman one of the greatest reviews ever. The film was “apparently meaningless,” they said, “but if there is a meaning, it is doubtless objectionable.”
