Lady and the Tramp
The longest of Charlie Chaplin’s numerous romantic entanglements (before he settled down with Oona O’Neill) was his decade-long tryst with actress Paulette Goddard, who enjoyed a prolific film career, including an Oscar nomination for 1943’s So Proudly We Hail! Before parting with Chaplin, she brought heart and fire to the role of Hannah, the beautiful ghetto denizen enamored of a quiet Jewish barber (who bears an uncanny resemblance to the dictator Adenoid Hynkel) in The Great Dictator. A 35 mm print of Chaplin’s spirited, slapstick, razor-sharp takedown of Hitler and his minions screens at 6:30 p.m. at Tivoli Cinemas in Westport (4050 Pennsylvania). The monthlong Chaplin Film Series continues with Modern Times (April 19) and The Gold Rush (April 26). Tickets cost $5 and are available only on the day of show at the Tivoli box office.
