Purviance and Chaplin on TCM, and Edna's family biography update

December 17th, 'The Kid' and 'City Lights' will be on TCM. Check your listings for time.

Also, just noting again, the lack of updates is the fact I am working on Edna's family bio. I am certainly working on the end of her film years. It's the last big career section in the book, before I start her years after films. I have done a lot of new research for this section, so it takes time sorting out and preparing for writing.

So far, I have 271 pages written for the first draft. This covers her family life starting with her mother and grandparents in England, moving to America, settling in Idaho, and then Nevada. Family life in Nevada, until Edna's birth, and Edna's life in Nevada until she moved to San Francisco to go to business school. And it goes from there...

Family was an important part of her life. Charles Chaplin is in part of the book, but he isn't the whole story when it comes to Edna's life.

Back to work... Updates on Edna's .org home page under LATEST.
