Photographer's Note

Photo taken in the old Montreal converted to sepia tones except for the walking-stick. We all saw once someone, most of the time a character, not moving for a while and always very impressive, of course the only move Charlie was doing here, was showing his hat, of course the one at the bottom !!

Charlie Chaplin was one of the greatest and widely loved silent movie stars. From "Easy Street" (1917) to "Modern Times" (1936), he made many of the funniest and most popular films of his time. He was best known for his character, the naive and lovable -- Little Tramp. The Little Tramp, a well meaning man in a raggedy suit with cane, always found himself wobbling into awkward situations and miraculously wobbling away.

Born in London in 1889, Chaplin first visited America with a theater company in 1907, He was known as one of the most demanding men in Hollywood, he died in 1977 at the age of 88 in Genieva, Switzerland.
