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.

Action is more generally understood than words. The lift of an eyebrow, however faint, may convey more than a hundred words.

I have stuck to comedy because I am convinced that my public is better satisfied with that than with any other kind of production. I essayed the "straight drama" once or twice, and cannot say that my efforts in that direction were very highly appreciated.
