Ides of April Plus One

Charles Chaplin, born April 16th, 1889

Tristan Tzara, a prime instigator of Dada, was born April 16th, 1896.

Theme for "The Pink Panther," who is, perhaps, Chaplinesque and a bit of a Dadaist as well, composed by Henry Mancini, born April 16th, 1924, in the Little Italy neighborhood of Cleveland, but also claimed by Pittsburghers. At any rate, one of the great Italian-American musicians (along with Dodo Marmarosa).
