++I've been watching these ancient Dinner for Five videos hosted by Jon Favreau. This one with Eddie Izzard and Louis CK was pretty interesting when they talked about how Hitler was a huge fanboy over Charlie Chaplin.
The love wasn't mutual and after Chaplin made The Great Dictator, Hitler was heartbroken and refused to show anymore Charlie Chaplin movies ever again…according to CK.
This led me down a wormhole where I looked up Izzard's movie about a doomed yacht ride in which some one was killed. I won't spoil it. It's seems as if Charlie Chaplin was having an affair with the darling Marion Davies. Anyway it's all too long to go into but if you are interested peep this amazing video with Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle. I also love this quote from Marion Davies:
God, I'd give everything I have to marry that silly old man. Not for the money and security—he's given me more than I'll ever need. Not because he's such cozy company, either. Most times, when he starts jawing, he bores me stiff. And certainly not because he's so wonderful behind the barn. Why, I could find a million better lays any Wednesday. No, you know what he gives me, sugar? He gives me the feeling I'm worth something to him. A whole lot of what we have, or don't have, I don't like. He's got a wife who'll never give him a divorce. She knows about me, but it's still understood that when she decides to go to the ranch for a week or a weekend, I've got to vamoose. And he snores, and he can be petty, and has sons about as old as me. But he's kind and he's good to me, and I'd never walk out on him
… And of course I gotta throw out some Midlake and Roscoe, a fave from way back in the day, that I post every couple years or so.
