Believe it or not, this handsome young thing is Charlie Chaplin! Yes, THAT Charlie Chaplin. The Little Tramp. The Dictator. When he was 9 he was sent to the workhouse because his mother was committed to an insane asylum & his father wasn’t on the scene. At 19 he went to the US to begin his film career. He was one of the founders of United Artists, giving actors, writers & directors control over their own work. During WWI he became the most famous actor in the world. His career was derailed by scandal, including paternity suits, divorce & a barely legal wife. All was forgiven by the 1970s, when he was given an honourary Lifetime Achievement by the Oscars and a knighthood. He died in Switzerland in 1977. And I love him. That toothbrush moustache hid the most wonderful lips, didn’t it?
