There is none who could have had as controversial a past as his. Born of parents in the entertainment industry, young Charles had never had a proper home. Neither his biological father nor his siblings were born of men who were not his father. He studied in central District London School for Paupers.
His father drank heavily and died of liver cirrhosis at the young age of 38. Not long after, his mother was committed to a mental asylum. At the tender age of nine, Chaplin had to give up school and make a living on the harsh streets of London.
Young Charles grew up to become Sir Charles Spencer, or better and more popularly known as ‘Charlie’ Chaplin, comedian, actor, director and music composer. By the time he was 26 years old, he was one of the highest paid artists of his day. Today he is known worldwide as the greatest actor of the silent film era. The Kid, The Gold Rush, The Circus, A Woman of Paris, City Light, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, A Countess from Hong Kong are some of his popular films.
He acted in silent movies, but it was impossible for viewers to say quiet when they saw him on the screen
