Whenever you think of comedy, Charlie Chaplin is probably the first artist that comes to your mind. Considered one of the greatest comic artists of all time, Chaplin redefined cinema with his motion pictures in the early 1900s. So as a tribute on his 128th birth anniversary, here are the five best films of the legendary actor-filmmaker who always knew how to put a smile on our face.
One of the earliest works of Chaplin, it is also the most hard-hitting. Chaplin plays a street tramp in the movie, who ends up taking care of an infant, whom he names John. However, after a few years, when child services get to know that he is raising a child, they take John to an orphanage. If there is anyone who knows how to create comedy from a tragedy, it’s Chaplin.
