Publisher's Summary

This week, Studio 360 is broadcasting from 1914, covering the cultural happenings of a remarkable year. Charlie Chaplin debuted the Tramp, the character who defines the silent film era, in that year; one of America’s great newspaper cartoonists invented the first animated character, Gertie the dinosaur; and George Bernard Shaw opened a front in the war between the sexes with Pygmalion. Tarzan debuted in 1914, and Jack Handey reimagines him trading the trees for the urban jungle. Plus, the assassination in Sarajevo that sparked the Great War is recalled by writer Aleksandar Hemon, whose forebear was in the crowd that fateful day. [Broadcast Date: June 28, 2014]
