Charlie Chaplin. The name alone evokes the image of a character with a brush--like mustache in a derby, oversized trousers, floppy shoes, and a cane. He was, and is perhaps still the most memorable character in film history. He was "The Tramp."

The story of Charlie Chaplin's rise to fame is a remarkable one. Born in South London on April 16, 1889, his childhood was one of poverty, insecurity, and near destitution. Having a mother who suffered from mental illness and a father who deserted them, the young Charles was often left to his own devices. It was at the tender age of 9 that Charles Chaplin made his debut at the Tivoli Theatre Manchester with a clog-dancing troupe. Although it may not have seem possible at the time, Charlie Chaplin had begun his journey to stardom.

It is because of the hardships he endured as a child that he was so driven to succeed. Rather than forget his background, Charlie Chaplin continuously referred to these experiences which were so much a part of him when he began his career in silent film. This he did through his most famous character, "The Tramp." Charlie Chaplin made the world laugh, cry, and think because of his genius and his versatility.

Charlie Chaplin died in 1977 as Sir Charles Chaplin in Switzerland where he lived in exile voluntarily. His legend live on.
