This film clip from “The Vagabond” really shows what I found and continue to find fascinating about Charlie Chaplin and his creation “the tramp”.

His ability to convey more in just one look or gestures than a hundred words.

He was not just a silent comic but Supreme in the Art of Pantomime, a history that goes back centuries.
