A brief yet definitivenew biography of one of film’s greatest legends, perfect for readers who wantto know more about the iconic star but who don’t want to commit to a lengthywork.
He was the very first icon of the silver screen and is oneof the most recognizable of Hollywood faces, even a hundred years after hisfirst film. But what of the man behind the moustache? Peter Ackroyd’s biographyturns the spotlight on Chaplin’s life as well as his work, from his humbletheatrical beginnings in music halls to winning an honorary Academy Award.Everything is here, from the glamor of his golden age to the murky scandals ofthe 1940s and eventual exile to Switzerland. There are charming anecdotes alongthe way: playing the violin in a New York hotel room to mask the sound of StanLaurel frying pork chops and long Hollywood lunches with Mary Pickford andDouglas Fairbanks Jr. This masterful, brief biography offers fresh revelationsabout one of the most familiar faces of the last century and brings the Little Trampvividly to life.
