Despite his personal life being maligned with controversy, Chaplin’s films were some of the most successful movies of the silent era. His depiction of the ‘Tramp’ and the rags to riches story were forged by the hardship he faced as a child. Thanks to his ambition to become an actor, he co founded the United Artists production company and some of the greatest silent era movies were created.

His last film was A Countess from Hong Kong in 1967. He was awarded an honorary Academy Award for “the incalculable effect he has had in making motion pictures the art form of this century.” He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1975. This comedic genius breathed his last on the Christmas Day of 1977.
