Growing up in poverty with his brother, Sydney, with a mother who was a failed Music Hall entertainer of declining mental health, the brothers worked themselves up until he became a star stage comedian himself.

-> ''Has there ever been another artist...who has had more to say, and in such vivid detail, about what it means to be poor? Conceivably [[Creator/CharlesDickens Dickens]], another artist often reproached for sentimentality...but surely no other figure in the 20th century. And because there is arguably no other figure in the world during Chaplinís heyday who was more widely known and loved -- not even a politician like his arch-enemy Hitler, much less another artist--discussing him as if he were just another writer-director or actor ultimately means short-changing that world and that history.''
