A quick-read biography of the legend, Charlie Chaplin.
Sometimes sleeping rough as a child and begging for food, Chaplin rose from wrenching poverty in London to stardom in Hollywood. Though he had superb theatrical instincts that brought him acclaim in acting and directing, Chaplin received criticism for his political views and alleged immorality. Ackroyd insightfully depicts Chaplin as a human being while shedding light on his ground-breaking motion picture achievements.
The fact that it's a bio on Charlie Chaplin, the silent comedian who Ive been a fan of for decades speaks volumes in itself. I cant wait to read this book. Ive found that I like most stuff written about Chaplin, so Im sure to love it.
