1936 - 47 years before Michael Jackson’s iconic moon walk which was seen on the television show - 25th Anniversary of Motown in 1983.
Michael Jackson idolized Charlie Chaplin, he sang his own rendition of “Smile” and he went to visit his widow Oona in 1984 I believe at the Chaplin home in Vevey.
I can’t help wondering if Michael took this scene from “Modern Times” as inspiration for his most famous dance move.

Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us — in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
