Chaplin became independent in late 1917 and built his own studio - on very English lines. His first film was never released. Entitled How To Make Movies, it was a home-movie style tour of his new domain. The film was never even cut together, but Chaplin left cutting notes and part of it opens this programme. Jackie Coogan and Lita Grey talk about The Kid. Lita Grey became Mrs Chaplin and the start of The Gold Rush before her pregnancy complicated matters and led to her being replace by Georgia Hale. Miss Hale, who has always refused interviews, talks compellingly about The Gold Rush. Sound arrived. He continued making silent films. City Lights starred Virginia Cherrill, another who has consistently refused interviews. She describes Chaplin's dissatisfaction with her and how he fired her and how she was reinstated. The film became Chaplin's most successful and most admired picture. With stills, camera tests and rushes we throw new light on all these famous classics.
The first in the trilogy covers the period Chaplin spent with the Mutual Film Company, for whom he made 12 two-reel comedies. Chaplin's early working methods are unknown, thanks to his habit of ordering his outtakes burned. Happily, he was not always obeyed and hundreds of cans of uncut rushes from the Mutual period have been made available by Raymond Rohauer. By assembling them in slate order, Brownlow and Gill were able to discover the progression of Chaplin's ideas. Working with no script, he developed his story in front of the camera. We follow Chaplin through the hard work of improvising a film, only to watch him throw it all away and start again. This is perhaps the first example of cinema archaeology and the acquisition of these outtakes - unseen for nearly seventy years - represents "the coup of the century".

Women have been omnipresent in Hollywood on the other side of the camera almost from the beginning. Think of the most successful actress, producer and business woman Mary Pickford or Frances Marion, to name but a few.

Well educated women with university degrees took Hollywood by storm. Paula Wagner, film producer of Tom Cruise who heads Cruise Wagner Productions, tells us about the new era in Hollywood.
