• Short Summary

    Charlie Chaplin is among well-known figures receiving honorary degrees at Trinity College.

  • Description

    Titles read: "OXFORD - DR CHARLIE CHAPLIN".

    Oxford.

    Various shots of a procession of people in gowns and mortar boards making their way from Trinity College towards the Town Hall. Crowds of people watch the Encaenia procession walking by. We see actor / comedian / director (etc) Charlie Chaplin walking in the procession. He is about to receive an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters from the college. Among other well-known figures being honoured and seen in the procession are artist Graham Sutherland, violinist / musician Yehudi Menuhin and American Secretary of State, Dean Rusk.

    The procession enters the Town Hall through crowds of people.

    Note: for search purposes - Charles Chaplin. Cuttings and correspondence on file. Pathe evidently had some trouble in finding a suitable spot for filming this event!
