I used translate.google.com and while it's a little wonky, I got the idea. Sounds like an interesting sequence (though this should go in the Great Dictator thread, really)

Leonard Martin's excellent Indiewire page recently posted this link for a great BBC radio feature on the Chaplin Archive Project. It was unknown to both of us for more than a year now.

Furthermore the Chaplin Museum looks to have a 2014 opening. Check out that virtual book!

There was a talk by David Robinson at the NFT in London yesterday-was very good and Claire Bloom was introduced as a nice surprise and she spoke for 10 minutes or so. Overall a good evening.

Does anyone know anything about the Charlie Chaplin: The Legend Lives On 5 disc DVD set? All I can gather is that the picture is subpar, but I can't find a listing of what films are included in this set. Is there anything essential in here, or am I better seeking out his shorts in other sets?

Here's something different, a Lavazza coffee commercial utilizing Chaplin's Final Speech from The Great Dictator.
Good Morning Humanity is Lavazza's new global communication campaign that, through the words of Charlie Chaplin's "Final Speech" to Humanity, aims to send a message of positivity, presenting the horizon of a new world, ready to welcome a humanity rediscovered. Lavazza #TheNewHumanity
