Charlie Chaplin was one of the most important stars in the early days of Hollywood. He had a lot of interesting things happen to him both in front of the camera and in his movies. He is best known as a movie star from the silent era. People often think of him as the Little Tramp, the man with the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane, and a funny walk.

A poor area of London named Chaplin was named after him. He was born there on April 16, 1889. When his mother, Hannah Hill Chaplin, was a talented singer and actress, she spent most of her life in and out of mental hospitals. His father, Charles Spencer Chaplin Sr., was a good singer until he started drinking.

As soon as Charlie’s parents split up, he and his half-brother, Sidney, spent most of their childhood in orphanages, where they often went hungry. They were also punished if they did not behave. As a child, Chaplin couldn’t read or write.

He left school to go on tour with a group of comic entertainers. It was later that they put him on the stage for a comedy show. Nineteen was when he became one of the most popular music-hall singers in Britain.
