Capturing Charlie: Collecting A Cinema Icon

Capturing Charlie: Collecting A Cinema Icon tells the story of this cultural icon through the collection of Chaplin enthusiast Paddy MacDonald. Featuring posters, postcards, stamps, cigarette cards, magazines, books, dolls, original artwork and more, the exhibition charts the life, work and image of one of the twentieth century’s most recognisable figures.

This exhibition is the collection’s first ever large-scale showing in Australia, and highlights Paddy’s love of Charlie born of a childhood spent watching his films and time spent with the Chaplin family in Switzerland. Numbering many hundreds of pieces, the collection demonstrates the significance of this iconic performer and also the esteem with which he is held by our collector.
