The Little Tramp is back. Monday 14 November sees the release on DVD of Charlie Chaplin: The Collection, a gorgeous new box set featuring 11 of Charlie’s feature films digitally remastered and accompanied by documentaries, introductions, outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage.
Following on from our recent film noir blogathon, we’ve decided to celebrate this new release by asking Charlie’s fans for their thoughts on his life and career.
Do you have a favourite Chaplin film that you’ve watched dozens of times that you want others to know about? Perhaps you have a view on some of the social or political issues that can be seen in films such as The Great Dictator? Or do you just like to see Charlie falling over?
Whatever you want to blog about, we’d like to read about it. There are a few simple steps to taking part:
- Decide on your topic – as long as it’s related in some way to Charlie Chaplin it qualifies for the blogathon
- Blog about your topic on or between 9 – 15 November 2011
- Copy-and-paste one of the images below into your blog post and add a hyperlink back to this page between (this just shows your readers you’re part of the blogathon)
After the closing date we’ll create a new blog post linking back to all the entries and you can then see who else took part in the blogathon.
Feel free to let us know if you’re considering taking part in the comments below or over on Twitter and we look forward to reading your entries!
