On this day 02 February

We live in a world that is constantly changing and life seems to be getting faster by the day. So as we welcome today, 2nd February, we take a look at what happened in history on this day…

Charlie Chaplin makes film debut
On this day in 1914, Charlie Chaplin's first film appearance, Making a Living premiered. After this production, Charlie went on to star in several silent films, so much so that he is still regarded as a pioneer in the film industry. He was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1958 but because of his political views, he only received it in 1970. Rather late than never but at least he got his star.
