Billie Ritchie - The Man who made the World Laugh @ Dunoon Pier
Part of Dunoon Film Festival 2018
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.
