The Charlie Chaplin List

Charles Chaplin arrived in Los Angeles 101 years ago today, making the career change that turned him into a Hollywood legend.  Chaplin was already a phenomenon on the vaudeville circuit when he signed a $150 a week contract with Mack Sennett’s Keystone Pictures, bringing his perfect comic instincts to a series of one-reelers.  But it was the character he developed at Keystone that made him a truly global star; soldiers in World War I trenches reportedly held up cardboard cutouts of The Tramp to draw enemy fire.  In the 1920s, Chaplin began directing features, at times even putting aside his trademark cane and bowler hat.  Whether behind or in front of the camera, he left a legacy of ingenious, imaginative work that has inspired filmmakers around the world.

On her 80th birthday, let’s show our appreciation for one of the world’s truly great actors.  Dench began her career with the legendary Old Vic Company and made her reputation on the stage before breaking through on screen in the mid-1980s.  A Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, she’s acting royalty who’s played more than one Queen.  And though Dame Judi is best known for impressively nuanced dramatic performances, she also brought new life to Bond and showed her impeccable comic timing in Philomena.  Is there anything this woman can’t do?

The Hollywood Ten List

The Red Scare reached Hollywood in 1947 when the House Un-American Activities Committee began scrutinizing the movies for signs of Communist propaganda.  When a group of ten screenwriters, producers, and directors declined to answer HUAC’s questions about their political affiliations, these “unfriendly witnesses” were cited for contempt of Congress.  The film industry reacted by formally refusing to hire the Hollywood Ten.  Today’s list marks the anniversary of the institution of the blacklist and celebrates the creativity of those artists who were victims of McCarthyism.
