Limelight and music hall


Chaplin’s “Limelight” and the Music Hall Tradition is a new publication, edited by Frank Scheide and Hooman Mehran. The collection of essays covers Chaplin’s film Limelight (1952) and the history of the English music hall. The book is the second in the ‘Chaplin Review’ series, the first of which – Chaplin: The Dictator and the Tramp – was published by the BFI in 2004. The second book has been published by McFarland, and a third volume is in preparation.
