On 13 January 2012, I had the generous opportunity to interview, over the phone, from her residence in London,  Claire Bloom.
A marvellous actress, who came to prominence when cast by Charlie Chaplin in the lead female role of ‘Limelight’, Ms Bloom went on to star opposite leading men like Laurence Olivier, Rod Steiger, Richard Burton, Paul Newman and James Mason.

Our interview is conducted on the 60th Anniversary of ‘Limelight’s release, and Ms Bloom recalls her fond memories of working with Chaplin on that film, as well as her memories of Hollywood, Buster Keaton, Sydney Chaplin and Cliff Robertson.
