April 16th 2014-Charlie Chaplin's 125th anniversary

Happy birthday, Sir!

Charlie Chaplin, the best comedian of silent films, ever!
Who doesn't remember those fantastic films where this MAN acted almost just with his facial and physical features, which he so well used to make us understand the plot, his feelings, his dreams his happiness or his sadness?

Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" ChaplinKBE*, was born on 16th April 1889 in London and died on  25th in  December 1977 in Corsier-sur-Vevey,Vaud-Switzerland. He was a fantastic English comic actor, film maker, and composer who rose to fame in the silent era. Chaplin became a worldwide icon through his screen persona "the Tramp" and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. His career spanned more than 75 years, from childhood in the Victorian era until a year before his death at age 88, and encompassed both adulation and controversy.

Chaplin's childhood in London was defined by poverty and hardship. As his father was absent and his mother struggled financially, he was sent to a workhouse twice before the age of nine. When he was 14, his mother was committed to a mental asylum. Chaplin began performing at an early age, touring music halls and later working as a stage actor and comedian. At 19 he was signed to the prestigious Fred Karno company, which took him to America. Chaplin was scouted for the film industry, and made his first appearance in Keystone Studios's Making a Living (1914). He soon developed the Tramp persona and formed a large fan base. Chaplin directed his films from an early stage, and continued to hone his craft as he moved to the EssanayMutual, and First National corporations. By 1918, he was one of the best known figures in the world.
