About Charlie Chaplin
Charles philosopher filmmaker was born in London, England, on April sixteenth 1889. His father, who died when Charlie was 9 years old, was an actor and his mother was an actress and singer. Along with his brother Sydney, Charlie inherited his parent’s natural talent for the stage and Charlie made his professional debut as a member of a juvenile group called “The Eight Lancashire Lads” as a tap dancer.
Beginning of his career
At the age of twelve, Charlie had his first breakthrough when he played “Billy” the page boy in “Sherlock Holmes” and then he started his career in comedy which led to him going to the United States in 1970 with the Fred Karno Repertoire Company. He scored an instantaneous hit with Yankee audiences, particularly with his characterization in a sketch entitled “A Night in an English Music Hall”. Which then led to Chaplin being offered a motion picture contract.
His entrance to the cinema world in November 1913 with Mack Sennett and the Keystone FilmCompany. was an immediate success and led to other producers becoming interested in Charlie’s services. He began his movie career on an initial 150 dollars a week but by 1915 he had moved on to the Essanay company for considerably more money. He was replaced at Keystone by his brother Sydney.
In 1917 Charlie signed with the Mutual Film Corporation to make 12 two-reel comedies. These embrace “The Floorwalker”, “The Fireman”, “The Vagabond”, “One A.M.” (a production in which he was the only character for the entire two reels with the exception of the entrance of a cab driver within the gap scene), “The Count”, “The Pawnshop”, “Behind the Screen”, “The Rink”, “Easy Street” (heralded as his greatest production up to that time), “The Cure”, “The Immigrant” and “The Adventurer”.
When his contract with Mutual expired in 1917, Chaplin decided that he wanted more control and freedom in his movie-making and began constructing his own studio at La Brea avenue in central Hollywood.
Early in 1918, he completed his first solo production “A Dog’s Life” and then he embarked on a tour of the US to help raise money for the war effort which also included a film for the US Government called ‘’The Bond”.
His evergrowing popularity increased further after he produced a comedy based on the war entitled “Shoulder Arms’’ which was followed in 1919 by ”Sunnyside” and “A Day’s Pleasure”.
In 1921, he came out with his six-reel masterpiece: The Kid before going on to found the United Artists Corporation with Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith.
Chaplin’s other talents also extended to a wide range of interests including writing, music and sports.

He was also a composer and wrote and published many songs such as “Sing a Song”; “With You Dear in Bombay”; and “There’s Always One You Can’t Forget”,“Smile”, “Eternally”, “You are My Song”, as well as the soundtracks for all his films Charles Chaplin was one of the rare comedians who not only financed and produced all his films (with the exception of “A noblewoman from Hong Kong”) but was the author, actor, director and soundtrack composer of them as well.
