Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin (April 16, 1889 - December 25, 1977)

Portrait by James Abbe, 1922
"Charlie Chaplin, the deathly shy, undersized, lower-class boy, born into a society that seemed to despise these things, dreamed he would overcome his handicaps, even preposterously dreamed he would go out and conquer the world. Put quite simply, he did. Jimmy the Fearless made his dreams his life." --John McCabe, Charlie Chaplin, 1978
