  • Charlie Chaplin’s Life
  • Charlie Chaplin (Sharlo) was born on April 16, 1889 in East Lane, Walworth, one of London’s poorest neighborhoods. Charlie’s mother and father, who had not yet reached the age of three, were professional artists working in music halls and various theaters. His stage name was Lily Harley’s mother, Hannah Harriet Pedlingham Hill (1865-1928) was the first professional to leave the scene at the age of 19. Chaplin’s life, which grew up in various homes in the poor neighborhoods of London, along with his mother-and-other sibling Sydney Chaplin, was disturbed by the deterioration of his mothers’ situation. Anne Hannah lost her voice during a stage performance in 1894, and psychological problems were increasing due to the immediate economic difficulties she experienced. After he was admitted to a rehabilitation center, Charlie and Sydney were sent to his father, Charles Chaplin Sr., who lived with his mistress. Charlie and Sydney were sent to Kennington Road School during this period. Charles Chaplin Sr would lose his life when his son Charlie was twelve years old because of his alcoholism, which he could not reach from the top at the age of 37.

  • When Hannah‘s disease reoccurs shortly after leaving the rehabilitation center, the children are once referred to one of the well-known nursing homes, which are generally known as workhouses. The days of this nursing home in the area of ​​Lambert, east of London, had been quite a challenge for Charlie, whose age and sibling remained distinctly young. Chaplin’s days of poverty in Walworth and Lambert leave deep marks on him and he will often show up in places and places he has chosen in his films in the years to come.


  • Sydney and Charlie later began to work in the theaters and music halls under the influence of their ability to come from family and their habit. Chaplin lived in the serious stage of his first stage experience working in a group called “The Eight Lancashire Lads“.


  • Hannah lost his life in Hollywood in 1928 seven years after being brought to the United States by his children. Charlie and Sydney, whose father was different, had a brother named Wheeler Dryden, whose mother was born in 1901 through Hannah. Dryden was kept away from Hannah by her father because of her mother’s mental illness and was raised in Canada. Dryden went to the US to see his mother in the mid-1920s, and later worked with his brothers in film projects and made Chaplin’s assistant.


  • Chaplin and America
  • After Sydney Chaplin joined the famous Fred Karno company in 1906, Chaplin succeeded in joining this community in 1908. Chaplin went on tour with the traveling Karno company between 1910 and 1912. Just five months after returning to England, he went to the United States again on October 2, 1912, with Karno. This time round, she worked with Arthur Stanley Jefferson, who later portrayed Laurel and Hardy’s Stan Laurel, and shared the same room.
  • After a while, when Stan Laurel was returning to England, Chaplin stayed in the US and continued to tour with Karno. During a show in 1913, Mack attended his team by making a deal with Keystone Studios, where he caught Sennett’s attention. Thus, on February 2, 1914, Henry Lehrman was stepping into a cinema where he could fully demonstrate his talent by acting in a silent film, Making a Living, directed by Henry Lehrman. Chaplin; His aloof attitudes and the “alienation” stemming from his being an Englishman, and his independent character, he proved his ability in a short span of time, especially by Mack Sennett. Chaplin, who starred in 35 films for a year working with Keystone, quickly became famous


  • Political Thought of Chaplin
  • Chaplin always feels sympathetic to the left-wing in his films. In his silent films, “The Great Depression” was featured by The Tramp (punk) through the character, poor, and the bad management policies were made to send. In the film of Modern Times, he pointed out the bad situation of the workers and the poor. He criticized Nazi Germany in a harsh manner with the film The Great Dictator, and at the time the United States officially launched a scoffing campaign against Chaplin in the United States, which is still in peace with Germany.


  • The techniques Chaplin uses in his films
  • Chaplin has added new excitement to the world of cinema in all his films of dreams and creativity that he thinks and creates in an intuitive way. He never developed a way to allow the screen to be completely closed. He showed dialogue in his films by switching to a different screen in writing, but he was able to make use of technological developments and come from above.


  • Chaplin’s Death
  • Chaplin’s steady posture began to deteriorate slowly after the 1960s, and it became difficult to communicate with him. In 1977 he continued his life with a wheelchair. Chaplin lost his life in Switzerland in 1977’s Christmas. On March 1, 1978, a small Swiss group tried to kidnap the body to be ransomed, but the thieves were caught before they reached their aim.
