Glad it worked -

- I guess they think we play too much at work, or maybe use too much bandwidth!!

I guess my memory isn't too far gone...it's been a while since I watched that clip, I knew it was Johnny (can't forget that), but wasn't too sure if they had the original clip of Chaplin on it.

Fascinating bits here everyone. Great to see how the performers sparked off each other.

Thanks for the clip, theresa. It is from "The Life and Art of Charlie Chaplin", a great documentary concerning Charlie's work, with several little interview snippets from Johnny. Interesting, though - they don't give credit to Arbuckle for the roll dance even in this documentary.

I can't see any of the clips (stupid filter at work - don't they know this is important stuff?)...but here is the link to an interview with Johnny about Chaplin's roll dance, and if memory serves me, I think it had a little of Chaplin's video.

Hope this works-since I can't view it either!


:disco: :disco: :disco: THANKS, Theresa! That is so cool. :cool:

Very understanding! They even came to Texas with me. :lol:

Raven, it is VERY time consuming but satisfies that need in me to do research.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Thank you so much, DITHOT. I really enjoyed seeing those.
I liked the music a lot. Heh-heh.

Catchy music isn't it! :lol: :disco:

Wow! What a ride!

I think I'll put Ravi Shankar in the CD player instead. I'm still not over Prabu. :grin:
