Η κλασική βωβή ταινία ‘The Kid’, 1921 [ελλ. τίτλος: ‘Το Χαμίνι’] ήταν η πρώτη που σκηνοθέτησε ο Charlie Chaplin, κρατώντας επίσης τους ρόλους του πρωταγωνιστή, σεναριογράφου και παραγωγού της ταινίας.
Κάτι που αρκετός κόσμος αγνοεί, είναι ότι ο μέγας ανήρ συνέθετε και τα soundtracks των ταινιών του, ξεκινώντας μ’ αυτό εδώ.

The classic silent film
‘The Kid’, 1921, was the first directed by Charlie Chaplin, holding also the roles of the protagonist, screenwriter and producer of the film.
Something that many people ignore is that the great man was also composing his films soundtracks, starting with this one.

    Great music. Such a very talented man. Has Hollywood seen his like since?

      I certainly don’t think so. And it’s even more unlikely to see someone like him in the future, since Hollywood’s heyday’ s
      been long passed. Thank you!

    Wonderful post! It was Charlie Chaplin week on TCM (old movie channel) and watched Chaplin actually attentively for the first time, so talented, brilliant!

      Thank you very much. I envy you actually, remembering how I felt when I first saw these movies myself. “Life-changing” is a word ridiculously overused, but experiences like these can truly change a person’s life…

        That so true, I was completely caught by surprise and wonder at the genius of this man. I wish everyone could experience the remarkable films, direction, writing, music composition created by Chaplin. He was a gift, I regret not appreciating his work earlier! Thank you! Thank you for this post!

          Thank you for your warm response.
          This means a lot coming from a person whose work I totally enjoy and appreciate.

            Thank you so much Oannes, I so appreciate your encouragement.

            1. Oannes August 24, 2020 at 11:05 pm

              I’m not into encouraging [rather the opposite, in a world filled with fake artists]. It’s just the truth.

    What a super talent! I’ve enjoyed his work in the past, but never singled out the music.
    Brilliant orchestration. Thank you! Seems like I thank you a lot! This is an awesome blog/podcast place.

      I can’t thank you enough for your continuously warm response Resa…
