Take a look back to London of 1889 when Charlie Chaplin was born, living a difficult impoverished life with a mother who battled mental disease and spent a considerable part of Charlie's life in an asylum. From there he traveled around London until he entered show business and wound his way west to America and then Hollywood. Follow his amazing rise to worldwide phenomenon, truly the first international superstar -- the first person who, thanks to silent films, was recognized and loved from India to Europe to Latin America to the United States, of course. CHARLIE CHAPLIN: HIS LIFE AND WORK is a fascinating exploration of the man who brought the world countless classic movies and much needed laughter. This disc is available as a single DVD or as part of the larger twelve DVD box set collection.
