Chaplin's Son Dead06 March 2009
A Tony Award-winning actor, who once starred on Broadway opposite Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl, Chaplin passed away on Tuesday (03Mar09).
The young Chaplin appeared in two of his father's films, Limelight and The Countess From Hong Kong.
He won a Tony for musical Bells Are Ringing in the mid-1950s.
He played Nicky Arnstein opposite Streisand in 1964's Funny Girl.
He quit the show before Streisand took the musical to the big screen - and Omar Sharif took on the role Chaplin made famous on Broadway.
He also missed out on the film version of Bells Are Ringing - Dean Martin landed that part.
Limelight was his first film role and is still considered Charlie Chaplin's last great movie.
