Charlie Chaplin

Charles Spencer Chaplin was born into a poor London family on April 16th 1889. Both his parents were actors and were inducted into the music hall of fame, which lead the way to his exposure as a young boy. His character "The Tramp", known for pantomime and quirky movements, helped him become an iconic figure of the silent-film era. The moment that really kicked off his career was in 1921 when he starred in, and produced, his first full-length film called ‘The Kid’. Chaplin went on to become a director, making films such as ‘City Lights’ and ‘Modern Times’, and co-founded the United Artists Corporation. He died in in Switzerland, aged 88, from natural causes on December 25, 1977.
