More Chaplin on TCM and PBS this January

If you missed the showing tonight of Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times on TCM, there is more this coming week. And don't forget the PBS special called 'Make 'Em Laugh' featuring Chaplin in the first part of the series 'Knockabouts'. Check PBS listings for your area.

And if you are in England, don't forget to see Chaplin at the BFI Southbank, with special showings in January. For silent film fun, checkout Slapstick in Bristol, England this month. In Salem, Oregon area? Chaplin can be seen at the Elsinore Theatre, January 28th in 'Tillie's Punctured Romance'. Also check out this link for more silent film showings.

And just a note about Modern Times this evening. I have seen the film many times, so like to pick up on little details on each watching. Can you remember seeing these common name products in the film?

• Hills Bros. Coffee
• Champion Sparkle Plugs
• Morton Salt
• Camel Cigarettes
• Mickey Mouse (stuffed)
Anymore you have seen?
