Quote of the Day – Charlie Chaplin

Today’s Quote of the Day comes from Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin, KBE (1889 – 1977); an English comic actor, filmmaker, writer and composer who rose to fame during the silent film era, with his onscreen character “the Tramp” considered one of the most important figures in the history of film. And yes, Sir Tramp was appointed a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (it’s actually called that) in 1975. He was most worthy of the title.

Chaplin wrote, directed, produced, edited, starred in, and composed the music for most of his films. Some of his best known movies were selected for preservation in the National film Registry, including: The Immigrant (1917), The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), and The Great Dictator (1940) where Chaplin satirized Adolf Hitler brilliantly. (He already had the moustache.)
