Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin was born on 16th April 1889 in England. His father’s name was Charles Chaplin Sr. and his mother’s name was Hannah Chaplin and they both were music hall entertainers by profession.

His father left his mother when he was quite young due to her mental health issues.

Charlie Chaplin spend his childhood days in extreme poverty and had to struggle a lot to put bread on his table. He made his first stage appearance at the tender age of five to replace his mother in a show whose mental health was deteriorating day by day.

At the age of he joined the Eight Lancashire Lads clog-dancing troupe and toured all the music halls for the next 2 years.

His hardworking nature and extraordinary acting skills at such a young age got him great audience attention and applause.

Charlie had a very good bond with his half-brother Sydney with whom he spent his childhood days working at desolated workhouses and staying at residential schools.

Their mother’s mental condition further worsened and had to be confined in an asylum.

He used his mother’s musical contacts and started getting work for himself at an early age. His career started at a very young age and had a span of around 75 years.

In,1914 Chaplin appeared in Mack Sennet’s comedy film Making a Living which laid the foundation of his comic image as we know it today.

On Sennet’s recommendation, Chaplin turned his character more hilarious as he created the world-recognized character “The Tramp”.

He extemporized his character by changing his character by wearing a very short coat, oversized pants, floppy shoes, a roughly damaged derby hat, and the look was finished with a small mustache and an old cane.

His character portrayed a quintessential weirdo who was abandoned by society, faced a stroke of bad luck in love, and was a jack of all trades.

The character was based on his childhood struggles and was loved by the audience for his cheekiness who left all his sorrows behind to find a better future.

The character was a hit and Chaplin was established as a superstar. He did 35 movies with Keystone based on “The Tramp” character.

In 1918 he shifted his studio to First National Film Corporation signing a deal of $1 million.

While working in this studio he made his masterpiece “The Gold Rush” in 1925 and “The Circus” in 1928. His silent movie “City Lights” was also a major success in the time of Talkies movies.

He married four times in his lifetime and all tragically ended in a divorce. He had eleven children from his marriages and the family tree is now fully blooming with his grandchildren.
