No words for the beauty of this film or of Charles Chaplin and Paulette Goddard.

Goddard later married Erich Maria Remarque who made All Quiet on the Western Front.

I have been very respectful of artists’ copyrights, but in the spirit of U.S. Title 17 > Chapter 1 > § 107 → Fair use act (), I have decided to, in some cases, succumb to the temptation to show an occasional image from this art that I love so much.

Modern Times: Chaplin's nonsense song 28 October 04

I received a wonderful gift: The Chaplin Collection Volume One. Thank you.
Included in the DVD collection is a karaoke version of the nonsense song Chaplin performed in the music hall scene in Modern Times.
Here is the text:

Se bella giu satore
Je notre so cafore
Je notre si cavore
Je la tu la ti la twah

La spinash o la bouchon
Cigaretto Portabello
Si rakish spaghaletto
Ti la tu la ti la twah

Senora pilasina
Voulez-vous le taximeter?
Le zionta su la seata
Tu la tu la tu la wa

Sa montia si n’amora
La sontia so gravora
La zontcha con sora
Je la possa ti la twah

Je notre so lamina
Je notre so cosina
Je le se tro savita
Je la tossa vi la twah

Se motra so la sonta
Chi vossa l’otra volta
Li zoscha si catonta
Tra la la la la la la
