This biographical documentary examines the early life and career of Charlie Chaplin. A repeated feature of American Public television, the film is narrated by Gloria Swanson. Some of Chaplin's early short films are shown in excerpt, but they are taken out of context so that the roles can be grouped into categories which show Chaplin's dramatic range.
