Terry Jones - In Charlie Chaplin's Footsteps
Terry Jones, best known for his work with Monty Python and a long-time fan of silent comedies, offers a personal re-appraisal of the man who changed the face of film comedy.

Terry traces Chaplin's incredible journey from the London streets to running his own studio in Hollywood. Showing clips that span his film career, he tries to get to the bottom of what made Charlie so special as an artist. With access to a wealth of home movies, Terry also looks at the troubled private life of the man, his loves, his politics and his obsessions. He talks to Chaplin's family members and biographers in his quest to get inside the skin of one of the true giants of film and comedymoreless
