Product Details


“A moving picture of the hero himself. A truly fascinating book.”
The New York Times Book Review
“The most original, virile book about the theater in a long, long time.”
Atlantic Monthly
“It holds the reader entranced. Every page can be read with pleasure.”The Times (London)
“The crucial artist of the twentieth century.” The New Yorker
“Among the greatest geniuses of film.” —Roger Ebert
“Few men in this century in any field attained his stature with the public.” The New York Times
“Chaplin was not just ‘big,’ he was gigantic. In 1915, he burst onto a war-torn world bringing it the gift of comedy, laughter, and relief while it was tearing itself apart through World War I. Over the next twenty-fivev years, through the Great Depression and the rise of Adolf Hitler, he stayed on the job . . . It is doubtful any individual has ever given more entertainment, pleasure, and relief to so many human beings when they needed it the most.” —Martin Sieff
“For me, comedy begins with Charlie Chaplin. I know there were screen comedies before he came along . . . But none of them created a persona as unique or indelible as the Little Tramp, and no one could match his worldwide impact.” —Leonard Maltin
“For a star who made his fortune in the silent movies, Charlie Chaplin has a surprising way with words. His My Autobiography, published in 1964 and recently reissued, moves along at a quick clip, lit up throughout its many pages by bright anecdotes, easy humor, and a confident way with a good yarn.” —Biographile
