Charlie Chaplin: The Great Londoner
  • Exhibition
  • "Charlie Chaplin - The Great Londoner is an exhibition hosted by The London Film Museum (formerly Movieum), featuring new insights into the life and career of Charles Chaplin, the boy from the London slums who won universal fame with his screen character of the Tramp, and went on to become a Knight of the British Empire.

    The exhibition has been produced by Jonathan Sands, founder of the London Film Museum, and devised by Leslie Hardcastle, creator of the prizewinning Museum of the Moving Image (1989-1998), in collaboration with David Robinson, Chaplin's biographer.

    The exhibition tells Chaplin's story in six main sections, evoking consecutive phases of his dramatic rise from rags to riches: A London Boyhood, A Child of the Theatre, America and the movies, The Tramp, Citizen of the World and The Happy Exile."
