Charlie Chaplin

I didn't enter the world until almost 6 years after Chaplin's death, long after his heyday as one of the world's biggest stars, but such was his legacy that I feel like I grew up with his work. In 1983, the year I was born, Unknown Chaplin, a three-part documentary on Chaplin, was broadcast on ITV here in the UK. It was a success and coincided with a time when British television began to show more films from what was deemed the 'golden age' of popular cinema. This meant that during my childhood I was able to watch films by the likes of Chaplin on TV. My dad and my nan especially were big cinephiles and happy to indoctrinate me…
