Some while ago there was an appeal here for info. relating to
recordings by or about Charlie Chaplin. I responded directly to the
person who posted the appeal - the assumed producer / director. I live
in London and am quite familiar with Chaplin's childhood haunts etc,
e,.g. Kennington. Also I know of film clips from when he started clog
dancing with the 7 or 8 Lancashire Lads (see the Pathe News Archive).
There is a wonderful clip where they all dance on pedestals. Also
there was Ronnie Collis - a renowned Chaplin imitator and a wonderful
clog dancer in his own right. Then there was the Roadstars - Leicester
Square buskers who step danced in Chaplinesque style. But you what -
despite all of my research and offers of help - I HEARD NOTHING MORE,
ZERO, ZILCH, SFA. Not good. Let others beware of wasting your time on
the project. CJB.
