The Great British Influence
Take a look at these two clips they are from an era way before television and some of the stuff we’ve looked at over the past year.
First of all your going to say it’s not British Classic Comedy and you’re right. However these films may have come from America but two of their stars Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel were British. It was just a thought I had, but when you look carefully at what has made people laugh over generations the British influence is never too far away.
Just a closing thought, when I was a kid I grew up watching repeats of Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy on BBC2. These days in the age of multi channel TV you never see them which is a shame as a whole generation may miss out, but it all goes back to what else we never see repeated, now there’s a list.
