Film History: Charlie Chaplin

We learned about the history and relevance of Charlie Chaplin this week in class after watching a number of clips from Chaplin's films as well as the Chaplin biopic so now it's time to answer the following question in a short essay:

Using what we learned and discussed in class what do you feel was the key to Chaplin's success and the reason for his later downfall? There are many potential answers but give a reasoning for your answer and support it with examples to prove your point.

If you enjoyed The Gold Rush and the other clips we watched in class I'd highly recommend The Kid, Modern Times, and The Great Dictator which are some of my favorite Chaplin films.
