Charlie Chaplin's earliest films (1914) were produced for Keystone Studios where he developed his Tramp character. The Tramp was first presented publically in Chalpin's second film "Kid Auto Race at Venice," released on February 7, 1914.
Chalpin's best known character, The Tramp, was a vagrant with refined manners. His signature toothbrush moustache was his trademark. Chaplin was knighted as a Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE) by Queen Elizabeth II on March 4, 1975.
On March 1, 1978, three months after his death, his body was stolen by a small group of Polish and Bulgarian mechanics in an attempt to extort money from his family. The plot failed, the robbers were captured, and the body was recovered 11 weeks later near Lake Geneva (and reburied under six feet of concrete to prevent another attempt).
