Sir Charlie Chaplin — English comic actor, film Director and composer who gained fame during the silent film era. Fame came to him after the short film “the Tramp”, released in 1915. This film is now considered a landmark in the history of cinema. Brilliant actor, lived 88 years, and 75 of them devoted to art.
In 1919, Chaplin co-founded the distribution of the film Studio United Artists, which allowed him to dispose of his films. His first feature-length silent film was “the Kid” (1921), followed by the tape “woman of Paris” (1923), “the gold rush” (1925) and “the Circus” (1928).
And even when in the 1930-ies to replace the silent movie came movies with sound, Chaplin remained true to tradition — he made silent films “city Lights” (1931) and “modern times” (1936). The world went to war, and paintings Chaplin became increasingly politicized. The 1940 movie “the Great dictator” was a blatant satire on Adolf Hitler.
1940-e years have become very controversial for Chaplin, and his popularity plummeted. Charles was accused of having Communist sympathies and anti-American activities, also against him was nominated a lawsuit about the violation of the Mann act. When Chaplin was under investigation by the FBI, he was forced to leave the United States, settling in Switzerland.
Chaplin was a writer, composer, Director, producer, and starred in most of his films. He was a perfectionist, and his financial independence enabled him to spend years on the development and production of his films. Almost all of the films Chaplin is a cross between farce and pathos.
Chaplin, who has received throughout his career for three “Oscar”, is still considered one of the greatest actors and Directors. And such films as “the gold rush” “city Lights,” “New times” and “the Great dictator”, often included in lists of the greatest films of all time.
