The Gentleman Tramp

G| 1 hr. 18 min.

Plot Summary
This tribute to the comic genius of Charles Chaplin was compiled just after his emotional and overdue Academy Award tribute in 1972. Briefly outlining Chaplin's frequently tempestuous personal life, the film uses newsreel footage, photographs and quotations from Chaplin's autobiography, spoken by Laurence Olivier. Clips from Chaplin's silent shorts and features display his ability to veer from slapstick to pathos in an instant. The film is rounded out by delightful home-movie footage.
