Charles Spencer Chaplin (1889-1977)

For those who doesn't know who Chaplin is:
Charlie Chaplin is considered to be one of the most pivotal stars of the early days of Hollywood, lived an interesting life both in his films and behind the camera. He is most recognized as an icon of the silent film era, often associated with his popular "Little Tramp" character; the man with the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane, and a funny walk.

So here is the list, hope you like it ^_^

The Kid (1921)
Watching this movie, you will be touch inside out, it's so touching, that you could cry, and also it is so funny that you could cry laughing too, either way you'll cry. I mean, the boy actor plays incredibly well.
Also, many of Chaplin’s admirers regard The Kid as his most perfect and most personal film. Yet it seems to have been born out of a state of acute emotional turmoil in his private life.

The Circus (1928)
I laugh my a** out real hard watching this movie, for so long i've never though i'll be laughing this hard watching a movie, then what struck me is that i laugh at a silent movie, can you believe that? what a movie!!!
The Circus won Charles Chaplin his first Academy Award - it was still not yet called the ‘Oscar’ - he was given it at the first presentations ceremony, in 1929. The special award was for ‘Versatility and genius in writing, acting, directing and producing’.
The Gold Rush (1925)
This movie is Chaplin's first time for me, and after watching it i became like... what do you call it? chaplindicted? chaplinmore? nah... forget that, what i mean is that i start to search more and more of his movies, his masterpiece i might say, and very likely you'll do that too.
Quoted from his website he made this movie out of the most unlikely sources for comedy. The first idea came to him when he was viewing some stereoscope pictures of the 1896 Klondike gold rush, and was particularly struck by the image of an endless line of prospectors snaking up the Chilkoot Pass, the gateway to the gold fields. At the same time he happened to read a book about the Donner Party Disaster of 1846, when a party of immigrants, snowbound in the Sierra Nevada, were reduced to eating their own moccasins and the corpses of their dead comrades.
City Lights(1931)
This one is a guaranteed laugh out loud and tearjerker movie, it proved to be the hardest and longest undertaking of Chaplin’s career. By the time it was completed he had spent two years and eight months on the work, with almost 190 days of actual shooting.

Modern Times (1936)
Modern Times marked the last screen appearance of the Little Tramp - the character which had brought Charles Chaplin world fame, and who still remains the most universally recognised fictional image of a human being in the history of art.

The Great Dictator (1940)
In the autumn of 1938, when the Munich Agreement was being signed in Europe, Charles Chapin was putting the finishing touches to the first draft of a script written in the greatest secrecy. Rumour had it that the creator of the Tramp had decided to make his first talking film. Moreover, it was said that he would be playing the part of a character inspired by Adolf Hitler, and you know what? it turn out to be as memorable as the real life character itself.

Limelight (1952)
Charlie Chaplin made Limelight at the most troubled period of his adult career. In the late 1940s, America¹s Cold War paranoia reached its peak, and Chaplin, as a foreigner with liberal and humanist sympathies, was a prime target for political witch-hunters. It did not help that he had recently been cited in an unseemly paternity suit. Pilloried as he was by the right-wing press and reactionary institutions like the American Legion, it seemed that America had turned against the man it had once idolised.

so, that's it for now... for those of you who already chaplindicted, you can visit Charlie Chaplin's page for his complete filmography.

Happy Laughing ^_^
