Comedic silent film icon who gained world fame as The Tramp and starred in The Great Dictator and Modern Times.
He was forced to live in a workhouse at the age of seven, and his mother was sent to a mental asylum.
He was investigated by the FBI, who suspected him of being a communist, and moved to Switzerland, where he died.
He married four times; his last wife, Oona O'Neill, was eighteen when he married her in June, 1943 at age fifty-four.
He and Adolf Hitler both wore toothbrush mustaches, which inspired Chaplin to create the satire, The Great Dictator.
