Chaplin was one of the most creative and influential people of the silent-film era. He was influenced by his predecessor, the French silent film comedian Max Linder, but Chaplin brought forth a new, innovative style of comedy. Although we would consider this type of humor very "dumbed", and slapstick-ish, I believe he plays a major role in comedy for the film. I am not sure, that if he wouldn't have broken that mold (as everyone was so uptight then) we wouldn't have the type of comedic films we have today. His working life in entertainment went on for over 75 years, during this time he learned how to write, direct, and even compose some of the mucic for his own films. Chaplin died at the age of 88- but has left behind a legacy. In 1999 Chaplin was ranked the 10th greatest male screen legend of all time! The quote on the picture is from his autobiography, which I looked up on-line.. In a short excerpt of the book, you find out that Charlie had a tough childhood- alcoholic dad who abandoned the family, a mentally unstable mother, and they were very poor. Charlie Chaplin a true success story, and have being in the theatre, I can really respect that and truly admire this artist. I remember going to the theme parks in California (that's where I was born) and seeing the Charlie Chaplin impersonators! Thanks for the post.
