Charlie Chaplin

This is a photograph of Charlie Chaplin. Charlie was one of the world's first movie stars. His character, The Little Tramp, was hugely popular across the world in the early 1900's.
Chaplin's fame grew so large, that Charlie Chaplin look alike contests were held across the world. In these contests, people would dress and act like Chaplin, and judges would determine who best portrayed this famous actor. Chaplin himself once entered one of these contests in San Francisco. He did not win, and he did not even make it to the final round of competition.

  1. He was a very intelligent and talented man. He composed a lot of the music that accompanied his films -- played by real live musicians as the film rolled. And to my mind he was very handsome!
