1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An imaginative, often slapstick satire on the alienating and disruptive effects of mass production and automation. Charlie Chaplin, in his last portrayal of his famous character the Tramp, goes from a factory worker to jailbird to night watchman to singing waiter, beset on all fronts by bad luck, misunderstandings, and unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Befriended only by a lovely but wild street waif, he labors against all odds to make a life for himself. Primarily a silent film with music, sound effects, and some spoken and sung dialogue

From Peep Show to Palace recounts the enchanting early years of film, beginning with the primitive motion of the "magic lantern" in the fifteenth century and continuing, most significantly, with the explosion of research from 1893 to 1913, when the modern motion picture was born.

The great funnies: a history of film comedy by David Robinson( Book )

12 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be impossible in a book of this size to offer anything like a comprehensive survey of the vast, tumbling, chattering, shrieking army of clowns who have peopled the first seventy years of the cinema; and this essay pretends to be no more than a bird's-eye view, only lingering from time to time over a figure of particular importance or special attraction. Even so, everyone will find some of his favourites forgotten, or written off in an inadequate aside. I can only apologize for the inevitable. The section of the book devoted to silent comedy may seem disproportionate; but I have felt it important to give space to the more remote and unfamiliar film comedians than to dwell on artists who are still active or whose work can readily be seen at first hand
