Today is the birthday of Sir Charles Spencer " Charlie" Chaplin (1889 – 1977) He was an English comic actor, film director and composer best known for his work during the silent film era. He became the most famous film star in the world before the end of World War I.
Chaplin used mime, slapstick and other visual comedy routines. From the April 1914 he was writing and directing most of his films, by 1916 he was also producing them, and from 1918 he was even composing the music for them.
Chaplin was one of the most creative and influential personalities of the silent-film era. His working life in entertainment spanned over 75 years. His high-profile public and private life encompassed both adulation and controversy. Chaplin was identified with Left-wing politics during the McCarthy era and he was ultimately forced to resettle in Europe from 1952.
In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Chaplin the 10th greatest male screen legend of all time. George Bernard Shaw called Chaplin " the only genius to come out of the movie industry" .

Andrew Motion on " Bright Star" on The Guardian
Andrew Motion writes about Jane Campion's attempt in the film " Bright Star" to bring the Keats's life to the big screen
" The real and central love story, the story of Keats and Fanny, is fortified by other sorts of tension. After a doubtful start it becomes headlong, devoted, agonised, rapturous – an ideal of passion."
