EXIT SMILING. Beatrice Lillie was an incredibly funny comic who spent most of her career on the stage. But when she did make a movie, you can be sure that it's worth seeing. This film is about a troupe of actors, a disgraced bank clerk and a very bad play. Jack Pickford is miscast as the male lead but Lillie more than makes up for it with her hilarious antics, including one of the finest vamp spoofs of the silent era.

A COMEDIAN SEES THE WORLD by Charles Chaplin. Another book I haven't read yet but it looks so fascinating! During his world tour to promote CITY LIGHTS, Chaplin wrote a series of articles about his travels, which have never before been available in the U.S. Gathered in book form, it includes extensive notes and background information on the man, his times and his opinions.
