Sir Charles Spencer Charlie Chaplin, KBE was an English comic actor and composer who rose to fame during the era of silent film. Chaplin became an icon through his screen persona the Tramp and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. His career spanned more than 75 years, from childhood in the Victorian era until a year before his death in 1977, Chaplins childhood in London was one of poverty and hardship. As his father was absent and his mother struggled financially, he was sent to a workhouse twice before the age of nine, when he was 14, his mother was committed to a mental asylum. Chaplin began performing at an age, touring music halls and working as a stage actor. At 19 he was signed to the prestigious Fred Karno company, Chaplin was scouted for the film industry, and began appearing in 1914 for Keystone Studios. He soon developed the Tramp persona and formed a fan base. Chaplin directed his own films from a stage, and continued to hone his craft as he moved to the Essanay, Mutual.
By 1918, he was one of the best known figures in the world, in 1919, Chaplin co-founded the distribution company United Artists, which gave him complete control over his films. His first feature-length was The Kid, followed by A Woman of Paris, The Gold Rush and he refused to move to sound films in the 1930s, instead producing City Lights and Modern Times without dialogue. Chaplin became increasingly political, and his film, The Great Dictator. The 1940s were a decade marked with controversy for Chaplin, and he was accused of communist sympathies, while his involvement in a paternity suit and marriages to much younger women caused scandal. An FBI investigation was opened, and Chaplin was forced to leave the United States and he abandoned the Tramp in his films, which include Monsieur Verdoux, Limelight, A King in New York, and A Countess from Hong Kong. Chaplin wrote, produced, starred in and he was a perfectionist, and his financial independence enabled him to spend years on the development and production of a picture.

The Keystone Cops were fictional incompetent policemen, featured in silent film comedies in the early 20th century. The movies were produced by Mack Sennett for his Keystone Film Company between 1912 and 1917, the idea for the Keystone Cops came from Hank Mann, who played police chief Tehiezel in the first film before being replaced by Ford Sterling. Their first film was Hoffmeyers Legacy but their popularity stemmed from the 1913 short The Bangville Police starring Mabel Normand, as early as 1914, Sennet shifted the Keystone Cops from starring roles to background ensemble, in support of comedians like Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle. John, and Wished on Mabel with Arbuckle and Normand, among others, comedian/actors Chester Conklin, Jimmy Finlayson, Ford Sterling and director Del Lord were Keystone Cops. In 2010, the previously lost short A Thief Catcher was rediscovered at a sale in Michigan. The short, filmed in 1914, stars Ford Sterling, Mack Swain, Edgar Kennedy, bag o Rags, the Keystone Kops unofficial theme music, was composed in 1912 by William Mac McKanless, an African-American orchestra leader and songwriter.
The original Keystone Cops numbered only seven, George Jeske, Bobby Dunn, Mack Riley, Charles Avery, Slim Summerville, Edgar Kennedy, Mack Sennett continued to use the Keystone Cops intermittently through the 1920s. By the time sound arrived, the Keystone Cops popularity had waned. This footage has been used countless times in productions purporting to use silent-era material, the Staub version of the Keystone Cops became a template for re-creations. 20th Century Foxs 1939 feature Hollywood Cavalcade had Buster Keaton in a Keystone chase scene, during his own silent film career, the nearest Keaton had appeared in a police comedy was The Goat and Cops. Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops included a lengthy chase scene, mel Brooks directed a car chase scene in the Keystone Cops style in his comedy film Silent Movie. By the 1950s surviving silent movie comedians could be pressed into service as Keystone Cops regardless of whether they appeared with the troupe authentically, in the This Is Your Life TV tribute to Mack Sennett, several Sennett alumni ran on stage dressed as Keystone Cops.
The name has since used to criticize any group for its mistakes, particularly if the mistakes happened after a great deal of energy and activity. For example, the June 2004 election campaign of the Liberal Party of Canada was compared with the Keystone Kops running around by one of its parliamentary members, Carolyn Parrish. A2012 U. S. National Transportation Safety Board report investigating Canadian energy company Enbridges handling of a July 2010 pipeline spill in the Kalamazoo River compared it to the Keystone Cops. In sport, the term has come into usage by television commentators, particularly in the United Kingdom. The rugby commentator Liam Toland uses the term to describe a teams incompetent performance on the pitch, the phrase Keystone cops defending has become a favorite catchphrase for describing a situation in an English football match where a defensive error or a series of defensive errors leads to a goal. According to Dave Filoni, supervising director of the television series Star Wars, The Clone Wars
Mabel Ethelreid Normand was an American silent film actress, screenwriter and producer. Onscreen, she appeared in 12 successful films with Charles Chaplin and 17 with Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle and she was not a suspect in either crime. Her film career declined, possibly due to scandals and a recurrence of tuberculosis in 1923, which led to a decline in her health, retirement from films. Born in New Brighton, Staten Island, New York, she grew up in a working-class family, Normands mother, Mary Minne Drury, of Providence, Rhode Island, was of Irish heritage, while her father was French Canadian. Her father Claude Normand was employed as a maker and stage carpenter at Sailors Snug Harbor home for elderly seamen. She embarked on a relationship with him, he brought her across to California when he founded Keystone Studios in 1912. Her earlier Keystone films portrayed her as a beauty but Normand quickly demonstrated a flair for comedy. Normand appeared with Charles Chaplin and Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle in many films as well as Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel.
She played a key role in starting Chaplins film career and acted as his lady and mentor in a string of films in 1914. Chaplin had considerable initial difficulty adjusting to the demands of film acting, after his first film appearance in Making a Living, Sennett felt he had made a costly mistake. Most historians agree it was Normand who persuaded him to give Chaplin another chance, in 1914, she starred with Marie Dressler and Chaplin in Tillies Punctured Romance, the first feature-length comedy. She opened her own company in partnership with Mack Sennett 1916 and it was based in Culver City and was a subsidiary of the Triangle Film Corporation. She lost the company in 1918 when Triangle experienced a massive shake up which saw Sennett lose Keystone, in 1918, as her relationship with Sennett came to an end, Normand signed a $3,500 per week contract with Samuel Goldwyn. Director William Desmond Taylor shared her interest in books, and the two formed a close relationship, according to author Robert Giroux, Taylor was deeply in love with Normand, who had originally approached him for help in curing her cocaine dependency.
Based upon Normands subsequent statements to investigators, her repeated relapses were devastating for Taylor, according to Giroux, Taylor met with federal prosecutors shortly before his death and offered to assist them in filing charges against Normands cocaine suppliers. Giroux expresses a belief that Normands suppliers learned of this meeting, according to Giroux, Normand suspected the reasons for Taylors murder, but did not know the identity of the man who killed him. According to Kevin Brownlow and John Kobal in their book Hollywood The Pioneers the idea that Taylor was murdered by drug dealers was invented by the studio for publicity purposes. There is no evidence that Normand was an addict, despite the fact that this is repeated as if it were established fact
Clowns are comic performers who employ slapstick or similar types of physical comedy, often in a mime style. Clowns have a tradition with significant variations in costume and performance. The most recognisable modern clown character is the Auguste or red clown type, with outlandish costumes featuring distinctive makeup, colourful wigs, exaggerated footwear and their entertainment style is generally designed to entertain large audiences, especially at a distance. Modern clowns are strongly associated with the tradition of the circus clown, many circus clowns have become well known and are a key circus act in their own right. The first mainstream clown role was portrayed by Joseph Grimaldi, the comedy that clowns perform is usually in the role of a fool whose everyday actions and tasks become extraordinary—and for whom the ridiculous, for a short while, becomes ordinary. This style of comedy has a history in many countries and cultures across the world. Some writers have argued that due to the use of such comedy.
The fear of clowns, circus clowns in particular as a condition has become known by the term coulrophobia. Rustic buffoon characters in Classical Greek theater were known as sklêro-paiktês or deikeliktas, in Roman theater, a term for clown was fossor, literally digger, labourer. The English word clown is first recorded c.1560 in the generic meaning rustic, the origin of the word is uncertain, perhaps from a Scandinavian word cognate with clumsy. It is in this sense that Clown is used as the name of characters in Shakespeares Othello. The sense of clown as referring to a professional or habitual fool or jester develops soon after 1600, the harlequinade developed in England in the 17th century, inspired by the commedia dellarte. It was here that Clown came into use as the name of a stock character. Originally a foil for Harlequins slyness and adroit nature, Clown was a buffoon or bumpkin fool who resembled less a jester than a comical idiot and he was a lower class character dressed in tattered servants garb.
The circus clown developed in the 19th century, the modern circus derives from Philip Astleys London riding school, which opened in 1768. Astley added a clown to his shows to amuse the spectators between equestrian sequences, American comedian George L. Fox became known for his clown role, directly inspired by Grimaldi, in the 1860s. Tom Belling senior developed the red clown or Auguste character c,1870, acting as a foil for the more sophisticated white clown. Belling worked for Circus Renz in Vienna, the clown character as developed by the late 19th century is reflected in Ruggero Leoncavallos 1892 opera Pagliacci
Harry Philmore Langdon was an American comedian who appeared in vaudeville, silent films, and talkies. He was briefly partnered with Oliver Hardy, born in Council Bluffs, Langdon began working in medicine shows and stock companies while in his teens. In 1906, he entered vaudeville with his first wife, Rose Langdon, by 1915, he had developed a sketch named Johnnys New Car, on which he did variations in the years that followed. In 1923, he joined Principal Pictures Corporation, a company headed by producer Sol Lesser and he eventually went to Keystone Studios, where he became a major star. At the height of his career, he was considered one of the four best comics of the silent film era. His screen character was that of a wide-eyed, childlike man with an understanding of the world. Most of Langdons 1920s work was produced at the famous Mack Sennett studio and his screen character was so unique and his antics so different from the broad Sennett slapstick that he soon had a following. Success led him into feature films, directed by Arthur Ripley, with such directors guiding him, Langdons work rivaled that of Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton.
Many consider his best films to be The Strong Man, Tramp, Langdon acted as producer on these features, which were made for his own company, The Harry Langdon Corporation, and released by First National. After his initial success, he fired Frank Capra and directed his own films, including Threes a Crowd, The Chaser, and Heart Trouble and these films were more personal and idiosyncratic, and audiences of the period were not interested. Capra claimed that Langdons decline stemmed from the fact that, unlike the great silent comics. On the other hand, a look at Langdons filmography shows that Capra directed only two of Langdons 30 silent comedies. The coming of sound, and the changes in cinema, thwarted Langdons chances of evolving as a director. Langdons babyish character did not adapt well to films, as producer Hal Roach remarked. But Langdon was a big name to command leads in short subjects for Educational Pictures. In 1938, he adopted a Caspar Milquetoast-type, henpecked-husband character that served him well, Langdon continued to work steadily in low-budget features and shorts into the 1940s, playing mild-mannered goofs.
Harry Langdon kept busy in pictures and completed his final Columbia short Pistol Packin Nitwits only weeks before his death of a hemorrhage on December 22,1944. All funeral arrangements were handled by onscreen cohort and friend Vernon Dent, Langdon was interred in the Grand View Memorial Park Cemetery at the West Mausoleum located to the left of the main entrance
Richmond, population 3,275, is a town nestled amidst rolling farmlands on the Saint-François River between Sherbrooke and Drummondville, in the heart of Estrie in Quebec, Canada. Richmond grew in importance during the 1800s when it became a key railway junction, the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad opened between Montreal and Portland, Maine, on April 4,1853 and was purchased four months and absorbed into the Grand Trunk Railway s system. Two years later, the GTR opened a line from the mainline in Richmond northeast to Lévis to connect Montreal with Quebec City.

Two of his films, The Italian, for which he wrote the screenplay, and Civilization and he partnered with D. W. Griffith and Mack Sennett to form the Triangle Motion Picture Company whose studios are the present-day site of Sony Pictures. He built a new studio about a mile from Triangle which is now the site of Culver Studios.

Ince found his first film work as an actor for the Biograph Company, directed by his future partner, Griffith was impressed enough with Ince to hire him as a Production coordinator at Biograph.
This led to work coordinating productions at Carl Laemmles Independent Motion Pictures Co. And, although he tackled many different subjects, he was drawn to Westerns. Clashes between the trust and independent films became exacerbated, so Ince moved to California to escape these pressures and he hoped to achieve the effects accomplished with minimal facilities like Griffith, which he believed, could only be accomplished in Hollywood. After only a year with IMP, Ince quit, the offer came as a distinct shock, but I kept cool and concealed my excitement. I tried to convey the impression that he would have to raise the ante a trifle if he wanted me and that worked, and I signed a contract for three months at $150 a week. Very soon after that, with Mrs. Ince, my cameraman, property man and Ethel Grandin, my leading woman, together with his young wife and a small entourage, Ince moved to Bison Studios to begin work immediately
