    Do you know the famous song that Charlie Chaplin wrote?

    All of us have some knowledge of Charlie Chaplin but if we look deeper the man was more than a comedian, silent film star, and good looking man, he also was an inventor and song writer. The song Smile was written by Charlie but did you know under what conditions? Sadly, the history books don't include this part of history but the newspapers do. Thank goodness for journalist and newspapers. Your thoughts?

    I didn't know he wrote that but I love how Nat King Cole sang it. Nat King Cole was a musical genius in my book. smile I agree Charlie Chaplin was good looking but I actually don't know much about him. Have you written about him, I would read about him if you did. smile

      bethperry,
      I never knew this much about the man. Amazing many actors are "banned commercially" for being activists but Chaplin had the ultimate in banishment. We need to know this to protect our freedoms.
