August 15-18 2007 - Cadogan Hall - London, England - For the first time, all twelve of Charlie Chaplin's Mutual Films with Carl Davis scores will be shown at Cadogan Hall in London. This includes the eleven films Edna Purviance co-starred. Carl Davis will be the conductor for the event with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets are now available.
"This will be the first ever opportunity to see all of the restored and remastered Mutuals along with scores composed and conducted by Carl Davis." - Cadogan Hall, London
UPDATE AUGUST 4, 2007 - Michael Chaplin will introduce the event at Cadogan:
"Michael, who will be in London later this month to introduce a Chaplin season at Cadogan Hall, with Carl Davis conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra...
(He also) says: "Claire (Bloom) is the only survivor from any of my father's films. Limelight was a tribute to my mother Oona, and Claire bore a startling resemblance to her as a young girl." - Daily Mail
Oops?...well, I do wonder where this places Sophia Loren. She starred in 'A Countess from Hong Kong' which Charlie Chaplin directed and she is still alive, and at a film festival recently...
