If there is one name that is synonymous with the silent era and comedy, it has to be Charlie Chaplin. He is a man that needs no introduction. He is a legend and is someone who has iconised the idea of having a little moustache and wearing pants that are shorter than usual! He is the first name that pops in our minds when it comes to classic cinema.
