For the centennial of Charlie Chaplin's "Tramp" character, Pickford Film Center is celebrating with a feast of his films.
"Monsieur Verdoux" - which Chaplin called a "comedy of murders" - is considered one of Chaplin's best works and one of his most political, and won the 1948 Oscar for best screenplay.
Chaplin stars as a bluebeard in beret and cravat whose charm cloaks a murderous hatred, festering since the loss of his job as a bank clerk. The movie screens at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Pickford, 1318 Bay St.
Admission is $7.25 members, $8.50 nonmembers, $5 for kids 12 and younger. Details: pickfordfilmcenter.org.
