Charlie Chaplin was a British actor and filmmaker. He was born in England, and suffered through tons of hardship, including the absence of his father, financial issues, and the fact that his mother was committed to a mental hospital. Charlie was sent to a workhouse (a shelter/job force) twice before he was nine years old. When he was nineteen, he was signed to an acting company and sent to America. Since then, he has been labeled as one of the most revolutionary artists in American history. Charlie was awarded with an Honorary Academy Award for pioneering the entertainment we have today. In the New Year Honours 1975 Chaplin was appointed as a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Chaplin was also awarded honorary Doctor of Letters degrees by the University of Oxford and the University of Durham in 1962. In 1965 he received a joint Erasmus Prize with film director Ingmar Bergman. In 1971 he was made a Commander of the national order of the Legion of Honour at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
