Nei momenti difficili un'intuizione forte può dare senso e concretezza a bisogni diffusi. Tale è l'uomo artigiano, ovvero l'homo artifex, che persegue per sé e per la propria personale soddisfazione la ricerca dell'opera quasi perfetta, del buon lavoro fatto con arte, intelligenza, sapienza manuale e conoscenza. Torna oggi con forza questo desiderio, a ben vedere quasi innato nella nostra natura, contro la mediocrità e il "basta che sia fatto"…

The Culture of the New Capitalism
Publisher: Yale University Press | ISBN: 030010782X | edition 2006 | PDF | 224 pages | 10,7 mb

The distinguished sociologist Richard Sennett surveys major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global, more febrile, ever more mutable version of capitalism that is taking its place. He shows how these changes affect everyday life—how the work ethic is changing; how new beliefs about merit and talent displace old values of craftsmanship and achievement; how what Sennett calls “the specter of uselessness” haunts professionals as well as manual workers; how the boundary between consumption and politics is dissolving.

Advertised as an "all star" film, Swing High is hardly that: The biggest name in the picture, both in terms of popularity and sheer marquee space, was Helen Twelvetrees. A variation of the 1926 German classic Variety, the film casts Twelvetrees and Dorothy Burgess as sisters Maryan and Trixie, a team of circus aerialists. When the two girls have a falling out over the affections of handsome Gerry (Fred Scott), it looks as though one of them will be taking a fall for real. This does eventually happen, but it ends up an act of fate rather than malice. It's amazing that the dramatic portion of the film is given any space at all, what with five musical numbers and the interminable comic antics of diminutive Daphne Pollard and phlegmatic Stepin Fetchit. Mack Sennett-graduates Chester Conklin and Ben Turpin make fleeting appearances, as do several genuine circus performers.

Charles Chaplin découvre l'Amérique en 1910, à 21 ans, à la tête d'une troupe de music-hall qui compte dans ses rangs un certain Stanley Jefferson - futur Stan Laurel. Charles Chaplin, qui a perdu son père tandis que sa mère sombrait dans la folie, a fait ses classes à la dure école de la rue londonienne. Il garde néanmoins une confiance absolue en lui. Embauché par Mack Sennett, patron des studios Keystone, il obtient de mettre en scène ses propres films et signe, en 1915, avec les studios Essanay.
Rapidement, il devient l'acteur le mieux payé et le plus connu au monde. Le succès de Charlot, le petit vagabond, est planétaire. La Mutual Film Corporation lui propose un budget sans précédent pour tourner douze comédies. Ces deux années de création permettent à Chaplin d'affirmer son art. Un siècle plus tard, la magie reste intacte.
