The phenomenon of Chaplin's mythical status not only in film, but in world cultural history. This lecture by David Robinson will trace the creation of the myth to Chaplin's British origins; as a child of the poorest streets of Victorian London and as an alumnus of the British music hall at its zenith.
The lecture will take place in the former Greater London Council chamber at County Hall.
There is no need to reserve a ticket, places are on a first come, first served basis.
After the lecture there will be an opportunity to view the London Film Museum's Charlie Chaplin exhibition at a heavily discounted rate.
A Gresham College event.
