Chaplin, Charlie definitions

Britannica Concise

British-U.S. actor and director. The son of poverty-stricken music-hall entertainers, he became a vaudeville performer at 8. On tour in New York (1913), he caught the eye of M. Sennett, who signed him to a film contract. While making his second film, Kid Auto Races at Venice (1914), Chaplin developed the costume--baggy pants, derby hat, oversized shoes, and cane--that was to become the hallmark of his famous "little tramp" character. He was soon directing his own films, and he became an instant star in The Tramp (1915). After cofounding United Artists in 1919, he produced, directed, and starred in such classics as The Gold Rush (1925), City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), The Great Dictator (1940), Monsieur Verdoux (1947), and Limelight (1952). Harassed for his leftist political views, he moved to Switzerland in 1952. In 1972 he returned to accept a special Academy Award.
