Eric James


In between his work with Chaplin, James worked with Ron Moody on the 1968 film version of OLIVER! and served as the vocal coach for the lead actors in the 1971 film of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. After Chaplin’s death in 1977, James and his wife Phyllis O’Reilly created a stories-slides-and-songs Tribute to Charlie Chaplin that they performed for over a decade. Eric and Phyllis moved to Canada in 1988 and, in 2000, he published his autobiography Making Music with Charlie Chaplin. James passed away peacefully at Sunnycrest Nursing Home in Whitby at age 92.
