The Chaplin College ! (in Switzerland))


Le collège des Crosets entre Corsier et Vevey en Suisse a décidé de se consacrer à Chaplin. Toutes les classes y ayant participé, c’est un décor entièrement Charlot qui accueille le visiteur.

Les plus petits se sont déguisés et se sont pris en photo, les plus grands ont dansé, et tous ont peint, dessiné, créé de centaines de CHARLOTS

Ils ont regardé les films, ils ont travaillé sur des mots, sur le noir et blanc, sur le mime.

Les enseignants ont pu découvrir l’ outil de travail utile que peut être Chaplin et son œuvre…pour parler de la danse, de l’histoire, du theâtre, du cinema…et peut être même pour apprendre l’anglais.

C’est un travail magnifique et impressionnant, jamais on a vu autant de Charlots en un seul endroit. BRAVO à tous.

The college des Crosets near Corsier in Switzerland decided to concentrate on Chaplin. All the classes came up with different things – and the whole school is decorated à la Chaplin.

The youngest ones dressed up and had their photos taken, the elder ones danced, and they all painted, drew, created hundreds of Chaplins.

They watched films, worked on words and on black and white, studied mime.

The teachers had the opportunity to see what a useful tool for learning Chaplin and his work can be – to study dance, history, theatre, cinema…and maybe even to learn English.

This is an incredibly wonderful exhibition – we have never seen so many Chaplins in one place. Congratulations to all.

Maybe Churchill knows who Chaplin is


Well if Churchill doesn’t I’m sure Einstein does


Ok as a last resort we’ll ask Gandhi, I’m sure he’s heard of him


No really no one knows who the heck Charlie Chaplin is ?

Oh well he’s probably just some tramp

"Modern Times" (traveller) in Bluray !!!

Our official distributors in the U.S, Criterion, have just released Modern Times in BluRay, with a beautiful and daring cover picture.

This clever review has got it all right. The real Time Traveller is not an old lady captured in “The Circus” footage, as you may have heard*, but the Little Tramp Himself.

75 years later this absolute masterpiece hasn’t a wrinkle. It is as Modern and Timeless as the very first day it was released
