CELEBRITY Dark side of fame

Charlie Chaplin is widely regarded as the greatest comic artist in cinema. He's also considered one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century, becoming a worldwide icon through his screen persona, the Tramp. But hidden beneath the slapstick veneer lurked a darker personality, a Chaplin described by many who knew him personally as callous, exploitive, and sadistic. Furthermore, the comedian was vilified for his serial womanizing, a predatory habit that verged on the criminal. Coupled with his notoriously exacting standards as a filmmaker and a worrying predilection for harming those he professed to love, it's no wonder that Charlie Chaplin garnered a reputation as an often tyrannical and self-obsessed individual, a man who encompassed adulation and controversary in equal measure.
