Was Charlie Chaplin a communist?

In answer to the question "Was Chaplin a Communist?" the answer is almost certainly NO. Chaplin surely held leftwing, progressive, liberal and egalitarian political views but none that could be considered communist. Chaplin would never hide his views or conform to the American opinion that it was right to hate a Communist. It was for these reasons that poor Chaplin was labeled a Communist.

None, he was an Atheist. Actually he was an agnostic, not an atheist, as Charles Chaplin Jr. testifies:

agnostic. Some scientists say that if the world were to stop revolving we'd all disintegrate. But

the world keeps on going. Something must be holding us all in place--some Supreme Force. But

what it is I couldn't tell you."

As a child he grew up in extreme poverty with his single mother and older half-brother. After his father died when he was 12, his mother suffered a nervous breakdown (perhaps because of malnutrition, grief or syphilis) and Charlie and his brother were sent to a workhouse.

Charlie also spent some time on the streets as a young boy, doing odd jobs and stealing food. He went to school for a few months, but was largely illiterate. His mother never recovered, and he was very grieved to see her quick deterioration.

What is a charlie chaplin tin toy worth?

Depends, there were a few made that I know of. German company Schuco is the version I am more familiar with, there are other German companies who did the tin toy and I think an/some american companies did it aswel. The tin toys can go for similar prices really but the more valuable ones have fully working clockwork action, original box, all parts still there and whether it is tin faced or felt, tin faced being earlier and worth more could fetch anything upto $2500 (about £1500). The toys themselves can fetch anything between $400 - $1200 (about £250 - £750) depending on the day of auction and who wants it.
