Well said, Walter. Chaplin was all those things.  However the person posting the stupid "review" is not necessarily accountable for its content.

Charlie Chaplin was a suspicious and angry man. His hubris had no limits, nor his interest in young women. Did he inspire Nabokov's Lolita?... more

This gossip, snark, and psycho analysis on the Nabokov forum, of all places? And "obsessive-compulsive disorder"?  Really......

Does anyone here remember Charlie Chaplin? The artist and the grandeur and the conscience.......  

The raison d'etre of his work was not only aesthetic bliss but justice; and for justice he sacrificed both wealth and home.
