Personal Quote:

I don't believe that the public knows what it wants; this is the conclusion that I have drawn from my career. See more »

Trivia:

Although Adolf Hitler was not at all a huge fan--in fact, he had been misinformed that Charlie was Jewish, and therefore despised him--he was also well aware of how beloved Charlie was throughout the world at that time, and that was the reason he grew the Chaplin mustache: he thought it would endear him to the people.
