Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin was born on April 16, 1889. Though the beloved icon of the silver screen's silent era has been gone since 1977, his legacy endures. If you check Google today, the search engine has gone silent...via their doodle tribute in black and white to the Little Tramp's comic genius. Your video lunch today is a hearty serving of Charlie Chaplin, from his first on-screen speaking moment, to some ever-entertaining moments, and the Google Doodle tribute.
