The Successful Charlie Chaplin
27 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although this film is a compilation of his earlier work rather than an original story, it is a testimony to the success that Chaplin achieved as an actor, writer, director and producer of his own material. He set the precedent for subsequent film-making careers. Sometimes an actor has to write their own material to advance themselves creatively.
