Eugene Chaplin speaks to the BBC about his father

In April 1972, the silent movie star returns to the US after 20 years in exile.
BBC.CO.UK

My Dad, Charlie Chaplin

Chaplin made more than 80 films during his time living in America, becoming the leading icon in the era of Hollywood’s silent movies. But he left the US under a cloud in 1952, accused of communist sympathies and mired in scandal about his personal life. It was not until 20 years later, in April 1972, that Chaplin reluctantly returned to America to receive a special award at the Oscars.

《卓別林自傳》鍾玉澄譯,台北:志文,1982

這本書,待在我書架數十年,近日才翻讀。知道卓別林寫過4本書。他的檔案錄影量驚人。
近日有三段緣份:譯者鍾玉澄老師跟我說,當初看了【原序】記作者母子相依生活,很感動,決定翻譯。 (我被第一段的英國19世紀末的倫敦史地迷住。)
曹永洋老師說,書的結尾處,卓別林自述晚年生活幸福部分,選入某本書之中。他又說,此書唯一刪節的圖文,是卓別林在中共建國時受邀,登天安門之部分。

 Comedy calls for rhythm, and yet there is nothing of rhythm in life itself.喜劇需要韻律,可是人生本身並沒有這。

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.Nothing is permanent in this wicked world - not even our troubles.
We think too much and feel too little.


Happy Birthday, Charlie Chaplin!

TASCHEN Today, we remember the creative duo of Charles and Ray Eames who died on this day in 1978 and 1988 respectively.

For all his long career and prodigious energy he will always be associated with the phrase “the clash of civilisations”. How well does his argument hold up 24 years after he first penned it?

5 月5: Søren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, The ultimate failure of Napoleon. Bye bye paper fivers; Virginia Woolf's great novel "To The Lighthouse"

Virginia Woolf's great novel "To The Lighthouse" was published #onthisday 5th May 1927. The book includes fictionalised semi-autobiographical reminiscences of her childhood trips to the family house in Cornwall and the characters Mr & Mrs Ramsay are probably partly based on her parents Leslie & Julia Stephen (née Duckworth). Leslie Stephen was President of The London Library for 12 years and Virginia Woolf became a life member 4 days after his death.
To the Lighthouse was one of Virginia Woolf's most successful novels (the proceeds enabling the Woolfs to buy their first car!). 3,000 copies were produced by her Hogarth Press for the first edition. This is one of them from May 1927, and we're very happy to have it!
