Dear Friends,

After 7 years of blogging about Chaplin (first on Tumblr and now here), I've decided to take an extended break. I'm not abandoning the blog completely but I will be on hiatus at least until the Spring.

Feel free to read older posts, comment, ask questions, email me, etc. I'll still be around. You can also keep in touch with me via Twitter.

Thanks, as always, for your support. I am forever grateful. I hope to see you again real soon.



  1. As much as I will miss coming here daily for a Chaplin fix, I wish you all the best during your break!

  2. Hope you have a happy and safe break.

  3. I have learnt so much about Chaplin visiting this site pretty much every day. Thanks for all your hard work. Enjoy your rest and hopefully see you back on the block in a few months!

  4. Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts. See you soon!

  5. Hi Jess...just to add to the comments, I have learnt more from your site than I thought possible. I too look forward to my daily Chaplin fix, so thank you so much for your dedication, passion and scholarly detail. Your posts have made my appreciation of Chaplin much richer, so sincere thanks. Hopefully see you back on line after your extended break.

    By the way, thanks also for your 1936 posts throughout 2016.

    Kind regards


    1. Thank you, John. It has been my pleasure. I've met so many cool and interesting people because of this site--and because of Chaplin. I don't think I could ever completely walk away from it. It has become such a huge part of who I am. I miss it already. I say I won't be back until Spring, but it could be long before then!

      My best to you,

  6. Enjoy your break and I look forward to when you come back!

  7. Gonna miss you and your great work.
    Come back soon! Regards from Brazil. :)
