sandiegotrojandawg : I had the honor of attending these 44th awarding of the Oscars--what a night it was. Something that occurred at this special presentation of Chaplin's honorary award that isn't shown in this video was, just after the gentleman finished introducing Chaplin onstage, Chaplin appeared from the wings on stage left (your right as you're looking). He was then serenaded by Johnny Mathis singing, "Smile" as he walked toward center stage. The audience erupted and stood on its feet….the ovation lasted twelve minutes (to this day, the longest in Oscar history) as Johnny sang the lyrics and, as I looked around, so many people were in tears, as was I. It truly was a magical evening and this video helped to bring back so many memories of that night. By the way, Chaplin's appearing at this Oscars presentation was his first visit to the United States in over 20 years! He was overwhelmed by the reception he received. While I don't agree with his political views, I do recognize him as being one of the major pinnacles in the history of film making. He was brilliant at it.

العرب THE ARABS : it's the first time i hear his voice .

human memory : god please give us our charlie chaplins back

Serial Liar-in-Chief : I think this extra-long standing ovation also stemmed from the fact that the audience, mostly Americans of course, felt a lot of remorse in place of those politicians during the McCarthy era back in the 1950s refusing him to re-enter the U.S. of America because of his non-existing positive views of communism. It was a beautiful way of redemption.

yaser olive : Sir I respect you

Shrawan Koirala : 5 December 2018 Nepal 5:42 p.m.

Christopher Edwards : First time i hear him speak

Daniel Allen : Charlie's face in the beginning is the picture of a man who, though he has had wealth and fame, has not truly fathomed just how deeply he has affected both his profession and the world. It's the image of a man overwhelmed by the appreciation and gratitude of the people who have followed the trails he blazed. Chaplin, for his faults as a human being, was someone who changed the world. He took a novelty and helped to turn it into an art form. And his expression here shows that he never anticipated the love that he would receive. I'm glad he got it. May we all be so lucky to see the effect our presence has had on the world, if it be positive.

Dowdly : The U.S. government should be ashamed of their actions towards this man.

idiol mind : The LEGEND lives on

Old Hollywood- NBC Mr. Hahn : A true gentleman.

Annette Duval : Charlie Chaplin was A genius

Julián Bufarull : HE WAS WHITE?!

Naren Pillai : What a sight to see an experienced old star. He is all but humble; that has made him reach this height. I shed tears when he was given his hat and stick. Something which is his identity forever. The man to enact a clown on cinema and completely entertain public just by body language. I am sure his soul is in a good place resting. Love you Chaplin! Peace!

TheXalos : Without Chaplin none of the "stars" sitting there would be what they are. Movies wouldn't be what they are!

Johannes Hofbauer : What idiots give a thumbs down this man was just wonderful!

tubecrazy77 : A timeless legend. Who would've thought decades later, his movie clips will be shown on Mumbai local trains for everyday commuters to get over their daily grind. The most recognised and respected actor that ever lived.
