Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. London born legend whose impoverished childhood led him to the stage as a young boy and by 1910, American vaudeville. He signed with Keystone to work in films in late 1913 and soon debuted in the one-reeler Making a Living (1914). Chaplin went on to appear in over 70 short films for Keystone, Essanay, Mutual, and First National, also directing more than 50 of those shorts. He formed United Artists with Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and D.W. Griffith in 1919, and was able to begin exercising total creative control after completing his deal with First National. Chaplin was awarded an honorary Academy Award in 1929, another in 1972, and a portion of a third for the Original Score for Limelight (1952) in 1973. He was also nominated for Best Actor for The Great Dictator (1940), and for Best Original Screenplay for both that title and Monsieur Verdoux (1947). It's a long and complicated life and career for the Little Tramp, but you can see him at his best in features such as those already mentioned, along with The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), The Circus (1928), City Lights (1931), and Modern Times (1936)
