Well said, Walter. Chaplin was all those things. However the person posting the stupid "review" is not necessarily accountable for its content.

This gossip, snark, and psycho analysis on the Nabokov forum, of

Really......


Does anyone here remember Charlie Chaplin? The artist and the

The raison d'etre of his work was not only aesthetic bliss but
justice; and for justice he sacrificed both wealth and home.
