Charlie Chaplin in The Tramp

Charlie Chaplin's Salary and Other Concerns (Motion Picture Magazine, 1916)

These short paragraphs appeared in 1916 answering the question for so many concerning the salary of Charlie Chaplin and who served as the inspiration for his famous character, "the Little Tramp".


Charlie Chaplin's Credo (Direction Magazine, 1941)

"This, the much-discussed final speech in "The Great Dictator", is more than a climax and conclusion to Chaplin's newest film, it is a statement of Chaplin's belief in humanity, a belief in which his creative powers and artistic development are deeply rooted."

"Hope...I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible -Jew, Gentile -black man -white."

"Let us fight for a new world -a decent world that will give men a chance to work -that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lied!..."

Henri Landru, Monsieur Verdux and Charlie Chaplin (Rob Wagner's Script, 1947)

Attached is an article about the Charlie Chaplin film, "Monsieur Verdux" (1947) and the monstrous beast Henri Landru -the French murderer on whom the story is loosely based. This article was written by Gordon Kahn, remembered chiefly in our own time as one of the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriters of the post-World War II period. Not too long after this article was written he went into self-exile in Mexico.


Charlie Chaplin W.W. II Radio Address (Rob Wagner's Script Magazine, 1942)

Within the toasty-warm confines of the attached PDF lie the text of a speech that Chaplin delivered over the war-torn airwaves in 1942. Wishing only to encourage the citizenry of London and Washington, D.C. to be of stout heart in their battle against the Fascist powers, Chaplin's address was titled, "Give Us More Bombs Over Berlin".


Charlie Chaplin's Brother (Motion Pictur Magazine, 1916)

It must have been a slow news week when the industrious reporters at MOTION PICTURE MAGAZINE opted to write this piece about Sydney Chaplin (1885 – 1965),businessman, aviator, actor,(thirty-four films between 1914 and 1928) and occasional business partner to his younger super-star brother, Charlie:

"Charlie Chaplin is small and thin. Sidney is tall and husky. Charlie is dark, with curly hair like a boy. His big brother is light, and looks like a big lumberman. Here is contrast indeed. Their natures are as different as the natures of a flee and a bee. To see them together one would not take them brothers..."

Three years after this article was published, Syd Chaplin would started the first domestic airline company in the United States: The Syd Chaplin Airline, Co., which he saw fit to close when the U.S. government began to regulate pilots and all commercial flight ventures.


MODERN TIMES (Stage Magazine, 1936)

"The world, with the exception of those bright eyed youngsters under the age of five, has waited pretty breathlessly for the reappearance of a forlorn little figure in a derby, baggy trousers, and disreputable shoes. The fact that his reappearance was to be under the sinister title, Modern Times alarmed not a few of us.This hapless creature, whose name by the way, is Charlie Chaplin, had come to mean an unchangeable element to us...Disguised in current mechanistic ingenuity, veiled in lukewarm disapproval of the plight of the working man, and tinted a slight shade of Red, it remain, delightfully and irrevocably, Chaplin.
