Charlie Chaplin
I am not a political man and I have no political convictions. I am an individual and a believer in liberty. That is all the politics I have. On the other hand I am not a super-patriot. Super-patriotism leads to Hitlerism – and we've had our lesson there. I don't want to create a revolution – I just want to create a few more films.

There was a cabstand nearby and an old character they called "Rummy" Binks was one of the landmarks ... When I saw Rummy shuffle his way across the pavement to hold a cabman's horse for a penny tip, I was fascinated. The walk was so funny to me that I imitated it ... Day after day I cultivated that walk. It became an obsession. Whenever I pulled it, I was sure of a laugh. Now, no matter what else I may do that is amusing. I can never get away from the walk.

Charlie Chaplin       
He [Charlie Chaplin] has turned film clowning into social satire and criticism, without losing his astonishing ability to make us laugh ... Chaplin, like most genuine artists, is at heart a genial and gentle anarchist and the laughter he provokes only clears and sweetens the air.

John Boynton Priestley       
Charlie Chaplin
From the making of pictures I get a good deal of thrill. I get it more as a director and producer than I do as an actor. It is the old satisfaction that someone is making something, forming something that has body.
