Mr. Chaplin's hair is slightly flecked with grey. He gives the impression of understanding the peculiar potentialities of the medium more fully than any man in Hollywood. 'The medium more resembles music,' he says, 'than any other medium. Like music, it always starts not from an idea, but from emotion.' He also commented on what the public wanted. 'The public doesn't know what it wants. It wants an evening's entertainment. I try to give it and my interests are largely psychological. Think of my immense chicken in the Gold Rush, the kids will like that. But it's not the kids only. One last word, we can't make progress unless we get credit for trying.' – Robert Nichols in the Times.
