Billie Ritchie: The Man Who Made the World Laugh

11am / Sat 10 November / Pier Building

Event approx 1h 30m including Q&A. This event will be BSL interpreted

Often dismissed as just another Charlie Chaplin impersonator, Glasgow-born Billie Ritchie was, for a time during the First World War, a star in his own right. Trevor Griffiths traces his career from stage to screen. Billed as ‘The Man Who Makes the World Laugh’, Ritchie can truly be called Scotland’s first international film star.

This event/talk is BSL interpreted

This event was originally commissioned and premiered at the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 2018. Save the date: 20-24 March 2019
