Hats off to Charles Chaplin!
It is hard to appreciate Chaplin's films in the same way that audiences did when first released. The landscape of films has changed dramatically since its release. However, what is easy to see is the genius of Chaplin's central character, The Tramp, who is endearing and you can't help but root for him. Whilst not laugh out loud funny to an audience raised on films that have used, copied and refined the comedy Chaplin celebrated, the antics of his character still raise a smile and modern comedies could take a note from Chaplin and his iconic character.
