Product description


A biography examining the extraordinary life of Charlie Chaplin. Writing with full access to the Chaplin archives, the author provides an insight into Chaplin's working methods. Published to coincide with the release of the film Chaplin.

From the Back Cover

In just a few short years Charles Chaplin revolutionized the language of cinema and became the most universally loved performer of all time. But who was the man that dazzled and perplexed his adoring public? Perfectionist, playboy or workaholic? Spokesman for the poor playmate, of the international rich? Calculating or compassionate?

Only this definitive biography answers such contradictory and intriguing questions-the only one to be written with full access to the Chaplain archives-in which David Robinson provides a uniquely documented record of the working methods and extra-ordinary life of the mercurial genius of early cinema.

"An indispensable work for all concerned with the history of the cinema."

"A classic piece of film biography which is also the fascinating story of a brilliant, perverse, courageous man, indisputably one of the great artists of the twentieth century"
