Product description

Review

"In-depth and moving, and brings greater insight into the portrayal of a man who was shy and determined, modest and self-deprecating and unaware of his own genius." --La Stampa Magazine

"It has been constructed like an investigation into trails of unedited material and has the whiff of a detective story." --Cinecittà News

"An amazing treasure trove..."
...A must-read publication. The book is a collection of previously unpublished testimonies from those who worked with the great Charlie and from those who came into contact with him in various ways, such as The Kid, Jackie Coogan; the flower girl, Virginia Cherrill; script associate, Alistair Cooke; King Vidor; Lord Mountbatten; Oona Chaplin; and Lita Grey. --Cinecittà News

"A wonderfully well-written book that delights in its own anecdotes" --Il Sole

About the Author

Since starting his own film collection at the age of eleven, Kevin Brownlow has worked in the cinema - either as a filmmaker in his own right, or as a historian. He entered documentaries in 1955 with World Wide Pictures and became an editor in 1958. In the 1960s, he worked as editor with Lindsay Anderson on The White Bus and was supervising editor on Tony Richardson's The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968). With Andrew Mollo, he directed two feature films, It Happened Here (1964) released by United Artists, about an imaginary German occupation of England, and Winstanley (1975), made for The British Film Institute, set in the aftermath of the English Civil War.
