Charles Chaplin is considered a symbol of silent movies and humor thanks in large part to his charismatic character Charlot. This profession came to him from his parents, also related to the entertainment world. At the height of her career, Hannah Hill, Chaplin's mother, had begun to have voice problems. This gave Chaplin the opportunity to give his first performance replacing his mother at the age of 5 when in the middle of a performance she lost her voice and he decided to imitate her including the failure of the voice.
This decision was well received by the public. Years later in 1914 the character of Charlot was born in the film "Earning his bread", during this year the success of Charles Chaplin made him shoot 34 short films. However, his most outstanding films were long in coming "The Gold Rush" released in 1924 and "City Lights" released in 1931. At the beginning of World War II Chaplin shot one of his most iconic films "The Great Dictator" one parody of nazism. In which he himself played a persecuted Jew and a ruthless dictator. This work continues to be praised today due to its historical significance.
