! POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 11, 2017 PAGE 9 ABOUT THIS & THAT with Daniel A. EiCenso Chaplin' s Missing Pieces Recipes from the I Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED SHRIMP SCAMPI OVER LINGUINE Chapl/n's cameo in A Thief Catcher Considering the instability of early film and the amount of treasures that have been lost, we are fortunate that the bulk of Charlie Chaplin's work has been safely preserved. Oh, there were some close calls. Two of his earliest films from his years at Keystone Studio were once thought lost but have since resurfaced. Both were atypical roles for Chaplin. Playing vari- ants of his evolving Little Tramp character was not infrequent for Chaplin during his Keystone years, in part because studio boss Mack Sennett had other visions for comedy and in part because Chaplin himself was still evolving as an artist. Besides being an unusual turn for Chaplin, 1914's Cruel, Cruel Love is also one of his funniest. Chaplin is here a respectable gentleman whose domestic bliss is shattered when he is discov- ered in a compromising position with his maid. The film ends in a hilarious battle between Chaplin and his dopey doctors, who mis- takenly believe him to have been poisoned. The film disappeared from cir- culation not long after screening and for a while was considered to be one of the very few missing pieces of Chapin's work. Then, in the 1970s, a copy was discovered in Latin America and restored through the efforts of Film Pres- ervation Associates and Lobster Films of Paris. The Tldef Catcher, also from 1914, was not even known to bea Chaplin film. It was long thought lost until a copy was found at a yard sale in Michigan in 2010. Why it was forgotten as a Chaplin film is understandable, though Chaplin remembered playing a cop in his early days. Not only does Chaplin play a Keystone Kop instead of the Tramp, but his role is actually pretty minor, appearing in the midsection performing futile attempts to ap- prehend a fugitive and his dog. The film was screened for the first time in nearly a century in Virginia in 2010. Sadly, Her Friend, the Bandit, in which Chaplin plays the titular bandit, has not been seen since 1914. Little is known about the film's plot except that it starred Chaplin's frequent Keystone co-star Mabel Normand as herself. The critics of the day, however, give an indication of what we are LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Suffolk Division 24 New Chardon Street, Boston, MA 02114 (617)788-8300 Case No. SU17E0237PP TO: Anthony Bonetti of Medford, MA in the County of k~ddlesex and to all other persons interested A pe~on has been presented to said Court by David A.

"The Keystone players will of- fer Her Friend, the Bandit, one of those rough and ready farces that make everybody !augh," said The Oregonian. The story of A Womat of the Sea is more complicatd. One would give much to see t again as it represents the ony time in his career in which Chaplin backed off of one of l~s own productions and handed the director's work to someone else, in this case rising director Josef Von Sternberg. Cruel, Cruel Love The year was 1926 and Chap- lin was already an icon. He had dabbled in feature films and worked solely behind the camera for 1923's A Woman of Paris. A Woman of the Sea starred his favorite co-star, Edna Purviance, and was inspired when Chap- lin became impressed by Von Sternberg's strildng dramas. The film's story was a convoluted love triangle between two sisters who both fall in love with a worldly writer who travels into their fish- ing village. Chaplin gave Von Sternberg full control of production to allow himself time to work on his com- edy classic The C/rcus. However, the trust was shaken when Von Sternberg held a sneak preview in Beverly Hills without consult- ing Chaplin. Perhaps the relatio.lship could have been salvage had the screening been a success, but the reviews were mder- whelming. John Grierson vrote, "The final version satsfied neither Chaplin nor Sternlerg. It was still extraordinarily betutiful -- but empty; possibly th| most beautiful film I have ever ;een." Chaplin decided not to elease the film and, seven year; later burned the only survivingnega- tive as a tax write-off whm the IRS began auditing his re,enue. It's hard to guess what A Wom- an of the Sea would have done for Chaplin's career. Likely very little, as Chaplin's contribution was minimal. Fortunately, the films that made Charlie Chaplin the screen legend he became are widely available and still loved throughout the world. or as Hors d" oeuvres 1 pound medium shrimp 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (cleaned and deveined) 1 bottle clam juice 5 cloves chopped garlic 1/4 cup white wine or sherry 3 tablespoons margarine I pound linguine or butter Grated Romano or Parmesan 2 tablespoons olive oil cheese In a skillet, over low heat, melt margarine or butter and add olive oil.
