One of Geraldine Chaplin's most frequent directors, Alan Rudolph, once remarked that there was nothing very surprising about her being so brilliant an actress - it was in her genes. She is, after all, the daughter of Sir Charles Chaplin and his last and most devoted wife, the…more


Trivia and Quotes

  • I think Geraldine Chaplin is one of the best actresses there is! I have loved her since Dr. Zhivago! I just think because her father was slammed so badly here in the states back in the 50's the industry snubbed her to get back at him. She's awesome!moreless

    Actually just wanted to leave a fan letter, but I don't know where to email you. I read your father's book, published in the year I was born, and I'm so moved! I just finished going through 8 years of horrible life trials and the end of your father's book has truly helped to give me some closure. I believe your father was a good man, father, husband, and humanitarian. I wish I'd been one of the lucky ones to have known him. And you inherited all of his wonderful qualities and his talent as well! Your mother seemed so kind and beautiful. We should all have had a mother like yours. Your parents were so lucky to have found each other and to remain devoted to one another for the rest of their lives because it's so rare to find that these days. You must have had a very happy childhood overall. I'm just sorry that he had to experience such ignorance from the witch hunts being conducted at that time (not that they're not still going on under different pretenses)because everything that he talked about in his book I truly believe. Although at the end of the book, your father claims to not have the insight to life in general, I beg to differ. I believe that he's spot on explaining very simply that life is a series of randomness and we're all subject to that randomness. Many would argue with me, but that's what true freedom is all about. Being able to disagree and move on. Anyway, to conclude, I wish I'd see you perform in more movies and shows because you're so talented and it's always a welcome surprise when I do see you in something. I hope whatever you're doing, you're happy!moreless
