One of the best-known stars in the motion picture industry, Charlie Chaplin won international fame with his portrayal of the pathetic, yet humorous and endearing “Little Tramp.” During the silent film era he was often hailed as “the funniest man in the world.”
 
The son of British vaudeville performers, Chaplin began acting at an early age. In 1913 he signed on with the Keystone Film Company. Instantly popular, his box-office appeal had become so great by 1919 that no studio could afford to hire him. So together with Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and D.W. Griffith, he formed the United Artists film corporation and began appearing only in films produced by himself, including such classics as The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), and The Great Dictator (1940).
 
Although he lived in the U.S. for more than 40 years, Chaplin never became an American citizen. In 1972 he received an honorary Oscar at the Academy Awards, and in 1975 he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
