The Arts Society Leicester present Charlie Chaplin: Tortured Genius
Speaker – Colin Shindler
Charlie Chaplin was a man of contradictions – a playboy and a workaholic, an innovative artist and the last to embrace talking pictures. Chaplin revolutionised the language of cinema and in his guise as The Little Tramp he became the most universally recognised performer of all time. He had a tortured private life, but he was also adept at using elements of that life in his films.
