Charlie Chaplin won his immortality through hard work. He was perfectly willing to spend hours or days on one shot or gag until he had it exactly right. He won his fame by reinventing himself as a universal character: Before Batman, before Mickey Mouse, there was the Little Tramp, an everyman whose lack of name and address allowed him to go anywhere and do anything, as long as it was funny, or brought a tear. If you want to learn about this Chaplin, you can look at his films, which are available in fairly good condition on home video, and in superb condition on a new set of laserdiscs being issued by Fox.

NCIS: New Orleans - Desperate Navy Wives - Review: "Creepy Clowns & Sweater Sets"
Sign In. Spoilers Hide Spoilers. This film has been treated most unfairly. If the message of the film was 'these men are always lusting after and getting sex-isn't that great! However, these men are losers. They lust after sex, and it always goes wrong. There is no titillation involved.
‘The Sex Life of Clowns’
F rom his childhood days in Rimini, Fellini was fascinated by circuses, clowns and itinerant performers, and they figured in his films from his directorial debut, Variety Lights , onwards. They featured most famously perhaps in La Strada and Otto e Mezzo , and most explicitly in I Clowns , his second film financed by TV, which opened simultaneously on the small screen and in cinemas at Christmas Fellini saw himself as both a clown and a ringmaster and the circus as a metaphor for life itself, and The Clowns , which puzzled and disturbed audiences with its bitterness, ambivalence and obsession with death, is an uncategorisable combination of documentary, memoir and classic clowning, a sort of fantasia about the history and nature of a dying art form.
Police are pleading for end to evil clowns, a Clown Lives Matter march was called off, and schools are banning clown costumes while some stores are sold out. And now hysteria over creepy clown sightings has been rising to fever pitch in the US since August and is spreading internationally. However it turned out that she herself wears some pretty scary clown makeup and had decided to call the event Clown Lives Matter. When that crass echo of the protest movement over police killing unarmed black men triggered an avalanche of protest on social media and personal attacks against the organizer, who identifies herself on Facebook as Nikki Sinn, abruptly canceled the event.
