No, he wasn't. He had political views that were very leftist and progressive in an era when America was paranoid about that sort of thing. People accused him of being a communist because they also share similar( not the same!!!) views. Also, many of his close friends in the late 40's were communists but, in Chaplin's own words, "My friendship is not based on politics." He also refused to follow what America thought was right and hate the communists. These non-conformist qualities caused poor Charlie to be labeled a Communist.
