Google Doodle is on it a day early, with a video that stars a lookalike of Chaplin in his most memorable role, The Little Tramp, which Chaplin played wearing giant pants (contributed by silent film actor “Fatty” Arbuckle), size-14 shoes, a moustache made of crepe hair, a cane, and bowler.

Chaplin wasn’t just a clown in a Keystone Comedy. By the end of his life, he was writing, directing, and composing the music for much of his films. This video of Chaplin’s classics includes scenes from the beloved romantic-comedy “City Lights,” which Chaplin wrote, directed, and starred in. WATCH:
