Charlie Chaplin, Comic Genius

by David Robinson

In 1914 Charlie Chaplin emerged from the costume shed at Hollywood’s Keystone Studios wearing baggy pants, an ill-fitting jacket, and a small bowler hat – and thus was born the Little tramp, one of the world’s most beloved film characters. This book combines an engaging layout with hundreds of photos to chronicle Chaplin’s brilliant career as an actor, writer, and director, as well as, his often-controversial and much-publicized personal life. From his love affairs, his pursuit by the FBI, to his final break with the United States. With his brilliantly observed characterizations and his comic genius, Charlie Chaplin forever changed the course of moviemaking.
