Biography: Charlie Chaplin
Another is Modern Times by Charlie Chaplin. Although it is out of print, through periodic online searches I managed to find a used copy in good condition. The sheer physical weight of the book is intimidating. I often read for awhile in bed after my nap, and if I am still feeling drowsy, the book is so heavy that it is hard to hold upright. It is worth the effort, however; it provides a comprehensive look at the life of one of the greatest of cinematic geniuses.

The silhouette of the little fellow with baggy trousers, decrepit oversize shoes, undersize derby, frayed short cutaway, sporting a bamboo cane and jet black mustache is recognized worldwide. Hunched shoulders, sorrowful face, and frightened air made Charlie look all the more vulnerable. Chaplin are known to the uttermost ends of the earth and his face may be described as one upon which the sun never sets. Meyer, E. Report bugs here. Please share your general feedback.
On the train journey to London he found everything different and irresistibly beautiful, the girls, the countryside — despite the parched grass and the new buildings — the crowds that waited at every station to see his train go by. His homecoming was a triumph hardly paralleled in the twentieth century apart from a few great royal or national events. From Waterloo to the Ritz the streets were thronged with people all waiting for a glimpse of their idol and a chance to cheer. What an opportunity for a politician to say something and to do something big! Then we approach, the tide comes up towards the gates of the hotel. They have been kept locked to prevent the crowd from demolishing the buliding. I can see one intrepid motion-picture camera man at the door as the crowd srarts to swarm.
Honoring Charles Spencer Chaplin (1889–1977): A Centennial Review of Literature
In honor of Chaplin, a great lover of the big top, young talents and accomplished performers will stage an extraordinary show. A trip back in time for both young an old, full of thrills, laughs and wonder! With his incredible life story — from a deprived childhood to international fame —, Chaplin embodies the American dream. As an artist, he has influenced generations with his humanism and given the world cinematographic masterpieces.
As a child Charlie was awed and inspired by the sight of glamourous vaudeville stars passing his home, and from then on he never lost his ambition to become an actor. He tells of his childhood of grinding poverty in the south London slums and early debut on the musical hall stage, his lucky break in America, the struggle to maintain artisitic control over his work, the string of failed marriages, and his eventual exile from Hollywood after persecution for his left-wing politics and personal scandals. The greatest icon in the history of cinema, Charlie Chaplin lived one of the most dramatic rags to riches stories ever told. His life was marked by extraordinary contrasts: the child of London slums who became a multimillionaire; the on-screen clown who was a driven perfectionist behind the cameras; the adulated star who publicly fell from grace after personal and political scandal. After remaining virtually unknown for more than 60 years after its completion, Footlights is now published by Cineteca di Bologna in this volume for the very first time.
