Once upon a time a pair of pigeons were continually upset by a cobra.Every year the snake crawled into their home to eat the young pigeons before they learned to fly.They asked their clever friend,the hare,what to do.
"Do not be disappointed,"he told them,"We cannot stop the cobra by force,as we are not strong enough.We will have to use craft to destroy that cruel beast.Just do what I tell you and you will be safe."
The pigeon then flew off to the river where a queen was bating,guarded by all her servants.He snatched up the most beautiful necklace left on the shore and flew away just out of reach of the angry servants.Once they were running straight for the cobra's home he flew quickly ahead and settled at the window pretenfing not to know what to do.

The year the pigeon's family grew up healthy and safe.

In 1911,a penniless young man left England for America.His future was uncertain,but he did not believe it could be worse than his past.He had grown up among the poor in London's East End and experience great poverty.His mother's life had been so hard that she had finally gone mad.And his father died of drink.Both parents had been on the stage and lived in the hope that they would one day be"stars".Their son dreamed that he could succeed where they had failed.
By 1914,his dream had come true.His name,Charlie,was widely talked about in America.He was admired as the king of silent films.How did he reach the top of the film world and make a huge success in such a short time?It was not at one single stroke.His early efforts to copy other famous stars at that time were a failure.However,he gradually began to develop the character of a tramp,which is always connected with his name.He often borrowed ideas and even"stole"most of his clothes from others,but he developed his own way to go with them.He used a black hat to pass secret messages,and the walking stick allowed him to make fun of his enemies or to punish them from a distance.He got the idea for his famous walk from a London driver who had a wound in his foot.
