FILE - In this 1914 file photo, actor Charlie Chaplin is seen when he was a player in Fred Karno's vaudeville troupe, at an unknown location. Although the entertainer is celebrated as one of London's most famous sons, newly declassified files reveal that Britain's MI5 domestic intelligence service found no records to back up Chaplin's claim that he was born in the city on April 16, 1889. Uncertainty about Chaplin's origins linger to this day - a mystery Chaplin himself may have helped to nurture. (AP Photo, File)
