Charlie Chaplin is one of the most iconic and well-known figures in film history. With the exception of a solitary colour appearance in 1967’s A Countess from Hong Kong, Chaplin appeared on cinema in black and white for the next 53 years.Chaplin’s career spans some of the most pivotal years in film’s evolution as an art form. He was one of the medium’s first great superstars, and his films are still appreciated and studied today.While Chaplin never completely embraced colour film, preferring the aesthetics of black-and-white, his one performance in a colour picture demonstrates his willingness to experiment and push boundaries. A Countess from Hong Kong was Chaplin’s final picture, and his appearance in it is a fitting send-off for one of cinema’s most influential and vital figures.
