Steve Zalusky, manager of communications at the American Library Association, will see:

Charlie Chaplin at the Gene Siskel Film Center

I will always owe Chaplin a huge debt for helping to instill my love of silent film. As a boy, I would buy eight-millimeter movie prints of such films as The Adventurer and The Immigrant. It is always a treat to revisit these masterpieces, because there is always something new to discover. I've seen practically all the movies featured in the series, though not Monsieur Verdoux—a dark comedy about an old man who's a serial killer—in its entirety. I'll probably be seeing Shoulder Arms . . . and Limelight—because even more than I like Chaplin, I like Buster Keaton, and it has the only appearance of them together, as far as I know.
