Virginia at the Movies, Part I

In Part II, I discuss Virginia Woolf’s diary (Friday 7 Feb 1941: “We have been to Charlie Chaplin. Like the milk girl we found it boring”), and in Part III her letters (Letter to Vanessa Bell, Mon. 9 Dec. 1918: “Just consider that immortal evening last summer when you summed up the situation over a bottle of wine–the cinema and the submarine” ).
