** Creator/LaurelAndHardy during the talkies era. Chaplin had a specific rivalry with Stan Laurel, being that both men were part of the same music hall comedy group. While Chaplin was the star Laurel was able to imitate Charlie so perfectly that almost no-one could tell the difference. Chaplin felt quite jealous about this and after he made it big in Hollywood in 1914 he never helped Laurel out to become a star himself. When Laurel teamed up with Hardy in 1927 and became the world's most iconic comedy duo, Chaplin still didn't see why they were considered to be so funny. However, when they were sailing to their next gig, Chaplin practiced the violin to so Stan could cook bacon on the ''gas ring'' and that nobody would notice.

Being arguably the first major film comedian, he is responsible for establishing countless comedy tropes. Many of his descendants followed him into the acting world, including his granddaughter Creator/OonaChaplin. Daughter Geraldine Chaplin actually played her own grandmother in Sir Richard Attenborough's 1992 {{Biopic}} ''Film/{{Chaplin}}'', in which the man himself is played by Creator/RobertDowneyJr in one of his best-regarded performances, though the film ends with a montage of footage of the unparalled original.

** Chaplin directed ''Film/ShoulderArms'' in 1918: a film in which he is a soldier in the trenches during WorldWarOne, poking fun at the German soldiers. He made this picture to duck rumors that he didn't enlist in the British Army during WorldWarOne because he was scared. By making and appearing in this film he did show some sort of engagement.

** Furthermore, Chaplin made ''The Bond'' at his own expense purely as a war bond promotion after the US entered WorldWarOne.

* KnightFever: Was first proposed for knighthood in 1931, and then in 1956, when it was vetoed because of his marriages to much-younger women, as well as his leftist political views. He was finally created a [[OverlyLongName Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire]] by [[UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen Queen Elizabeth II]] in 1975, two years before he died.

* ExcusePlot: Chaplin made whole movies by trial and error, only using some pre-planning on his features, saying that he didn't worry about the story, knowing it would naturally grow out of the characters;
-->''"I don't care much about story—plot, as they call it. If you have the neatest tailored plot in the world and yet haven't personalities, living characters, you've nothing."''

Added DiffLines:

* MickeyMousing: Even though his movies were silent, Chaplin would always have someone playing an instrument like the violin on the set so a tempo and rhythm for the scenes could be established, and then a separate score could be played to the film later on. Creator/JerryLewis said in an interview that he learned this method from Chaplin and applied it to his own movies.
