A work of cinematic archaeology unearthing titbits of the history of Los Angeles and the early film industry hidden within Chaplin's timeless films. Combines movie images with archival photographs, vintage maps, contemporary photographs and scores of then-and-now comparison photos to conjure the silent movie era from an entirely new perspective. Includes not only Chaplin's classic films, but his lesser-known short movies and early work, highlighting both the genius of the man and the evolution of the city that provided the backdrop for his art.
