A Guitar/Bass duo play music composed by Chaplin:
“Now that it’s ended, Mandolin serenade, Sing a song, Falling star, Without you, Beautiful, wonderful eyes, Eternally, The spring song, You are the song, Weeping willows, Smile”
The music played by Manfred Junker (guitars) and German Klaiber (bass) is sweet, relaxing and jazzy.
Lisa Stein, Assistant Professor of English at Ohio University-Zaneville and author of the re-issue of Charlie Chaplin’s “A Comedian Sees the World” with her annotations and hyper-textual enhancements, dedicates an entire site to Charlie’s half brother: “Sydney Chaplin”:http://www.sydchaplin.com/, awaiting her book about his life-and-art. This first study should be finished in 2009.
After several years as a vaudeville comedian for the Karno Company and then Keystone’s actor in the USA - Sydney considerably helped his brother with his career and its financial aspects.
He was a real business manager for him and negociated Charlie’s biggest contracts. He was a real bon vivant.
We are waiting for Lisa’s new book with impatience
When we saw both Israelhatikvah’s and Jolie Albee’s sets of pictures we really wished there had been more children participating in the competition. In those wide eyes staring at you one could recognize something of Chaplin at the ending of “City Lights”. Bravo again.
Congratulations to all again and don’t hesitate to send more lookalikes, no matter if the competiton is finished, we really enjoy them a lot here at the Association, And I’m sure you do too.
PS : “Jolie Albee” and “Mein” Pictures were posted after the 25th of December deadline but they had sent pictures before which were lost as stated “here”:/ublogs/51. They were therefore easily recouped and remained eligible.
“h_essay”:/users/200 has many great pictures as well, we find both touching and funny (like the one where she makes a face at Buster Keaton). And we would like to thank her for the refreshing enthusiasm she has shown on our website.
“silent_twenties”:/users/131 made a great homage to “the kid”, we believe it’s a shame they didn’t get better ratings, she still has won the third prize for this very Chaplin-like picture of the little tramp sleeping on a bench.
