"The only genius to come out of the movie industry" (George Bernard Shaw), Charlie Chaplin gave cinema some of its most poignant, outlandish, and indelible images. A performer of balletic grace, he balanced never-topped comedic set pieces with moments of soulful vulnerability. Behind the camera, he was the ultimate auteur: a writer-director-producer-actor-editor-composer, whose exacting standards could yield that rarest of results: true moviegoing perfection. All films directed by and starring Chaplin.
