Born 16 April 1889 – Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin, a comedic genius who rose to superstardom during the silent film era, was born on April 16, 1889, in London, England. Although his childhood was marked by poverty, he found success on stage at a young age. Chaplin’s signature character, the Little Tramp, with his baggy pants, bowler hat, and cane, propelled him to international fame.

He continued to make films well into the talkie era, though he never abandoned silent film’s unique blend of physical comedy and emotional storytelling. Despite facing personal and political controversies, Chaplin remained an influential figure in cinema until his death on December 25, 1977, in Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland.
