The Charlie Chaplin scene I'll never, never forget is lo lie found, T believe, in Tlie Tmnii- granl. Charlie gets a job in a shipyard. It's his first rtijy on the job. By some fumbling mistake he actually launches a huge ship. We see his lillle figure, anrl astounded in atti- tude, as the ship slowly slides down Ihe ways. Good old Charlie! See him eating watermelon? He dries out his ears willi liis handker- chief! Here we have him befriend- ing a blind girl and now we have Ihe poignant moment when she sees the little Iramp for the lirsl limp. Who did that bit in the ballet film, the bit, about Ihe music sheets sliding from the piano? Was it Charlie? II must have hceu. We sec him at Ihc ending. He is walking off down the road, getting smaller, his fig- ure fading into the distance. The End. What a great pleasure it was to see him accept his Oscar! And aficr an exile of 20 years!
