Live Like A Star: Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin, the English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the era of silent film and became a worldwide icon through his screen persona "the Tramp" 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.

In 1924, Chaplin built this compound to serve as an on rendezvous spot for his famous friends like Marlene Dietrich, Gloria Swanson, and Marilyn Monroe.  Chaplin wrote his films there while welcoming a steady rotation of woman through his small front door.  He was only 5'5" and had it built to size.  Now The Charlie is an under-the-radar collection of English cottages tucked away on a quiet residential street in West Hollywood housing 13 entirely unique units.
