Gene Kelly and Charlie Chaplin Have Something in Common

Two events combined today, 2 Feb, for the book I'm writing, Bold, Brash and Brilliant, about the lives and work of Charlie Chaplin, Gene Kelly and Steve Jobs:

Charlie Chaplin made his screen debut on this date in 1914 in the movie, Making a Living. He had not yet developed his Tramp outfit, but within 1 year he would be known the world over and be making a million dollars a year by 1916.

Gene Kelly died on this day in 1996. He will forever be remembered in the movie,Singin' in the Rain .

Steve Job's breakout computer, the Mac, came out almost exactly 30 years ago.
