Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin, KBE, was an English actor, comedian, and filmmaker born in Walworth England on April 16th.

Charlie brought the birth of modern screen comedy, his first film was aptly titled Making a Living, and despite Chaplin’s low opinion of the film, Making a Living was well-received when it was released on February 2, 1914, the second film Chaplin made at Keystone, was Mabel’s Strange Predicament, and the first film in which Chaplin donned the costume and character of the Tramp derived from comedians of the British music hall and real-life tramps, thus the Chaplin we know and love was born.

Having stared in 12 films between 1921 and 1967 Charlie was the greatest slapstick comedian and from Charlie all other comedians have followed looking to bring laughter into the world.
