About Chaplin: Film-By-Film

Every existing Charlie Chaplin film, viewed and reviewed in order, from 1914 to 1967. As 2014 was the 100th anniversary of Chaplin’s film debut, it was too good an opportunity to miss. On (or as near to) 100 years after each release, I’ll write about every one of Chaplin’s 82 films (mostly shorts!), starting with Keystone. I may have to speed up towards the end, as I doubt I’ll be around to do A Countess From Hong Kong on its 100th anniversary in 2067!

About the Author: Brian J. Robb is a writer and biographer whose books have included a New York Times Best-Selling biography of Leonardo DiCaprio; Steampunk: An Illustrated History (Aurum); Screams & Nightmares (Titan), the definitive book on horror director Wes Craven; and a series of film star and movie director biographies. His book Silent Cinema is published by Kamera, and he also wrote a Pocket Essential on the films of Laurel & Hardy.

  1. Hi there! What a great idea for a blog. I’ll admit that you aren’t the only one to be inspired by these important Chaplin centenaries. Also being a lover of silent film, I’d toyed with the idea of blogging about silents for a long time and the 100th anniversary of Chaplin’s entry into film was too good a starting date to pass up. 😀 This is quite a project you have here, color me impressed!
