ST. PAUL, Minn. — Long known as a pioneering actor/producer/writer/director and film music composer, it's not as well known he was also passionate about all kinds of music. He often practiced six hours a day from the time he was a young kid.

A famous classical composer of the day paid Chaplin a very high compliment although Charlie, at age 20, was unaware of who this famous Frenchman was.
