Charlie Chaplin Centennial 1914-2014

Charlie Chaplin is for the ages

47 notes

Apple´s Think Different ad campaign - 1997. The theme of the campaign is one that celebrates figures in history who changed the world by thinking different. 



Charlie Chaplin 


Albert Einstein - a good friend of Charlie Chaplin’s, he and his wife were guests at the premiere of City Lights in 1931


Mahatma Gandhi - someone Charlie Chaplin very much wanted to meet, and they did in September of 1931 in London, England…ironically enough it has been reported  Gandhi who led a very different life had never seen a Chaplin film and did not know who he was..as hard as that is to believe.


Jim Henson (of muppets fame) - in 2000 Jim Henson’s estate purchased  the old Charlie Chaplin Studios on La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, they unveiled a 12 foot Kermit the Frog dressed like Charlie’s “little tramp”.
