Charlie Chaplin is the definition of film. He showed his feelings through his actions in his character the Tramp and in his first talkie he gave a phenomenal speech ever given in film. Chaplin has shaped the way filmmakers view the art of the camera the sets and especially the acting.

Part 1 of a heart-wrenching documentary about Lita Grey's relationship with Charlie Chaplin. She met Charlie at the age of six, and would become pregnant with his child at the age of sixteen. Raises many questions about their relationship that might not even be completely touched on here.
