FAKE AND REAL CHAPLIN GREAT

THIS IS A WONDERFUL MOVIE TOLD IN THE FIRST PERSON OF CHAPLIN OF HIS ENTIRE LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD AND EUROPE. HE LIVED A GOOD LIFE, A FUNNY LIFE, EVEN HIS DAUGHTER WAS IN THE MOVIE PLAYING ANOTHER RELATIVE. GOT TO SEE ALL THE REAL CHAPLIN MOVIES AT THE END WHEN HE WAS AWARDED A SPECIAL ACADEMY AWARD.
