Description

A silent comedy star whose legendary slapstick routines are recognisable to this day, Charles ‘Charlie’ Chaplin’s My Autobiography is an incomparably vivid account of the life of probably the most greatest filmmakers and comedians, with an introduction by David RobinsonAs a child, Charlie Chaplin was once awed and inspired by the sight of glamorous vaudeville stars passing his home, and from then on he never lost his ambition to transform an actor. Chaplin’s film career as the Little Tramp adored by the whole world is the stuff of legend, but this frank autobiography shows another side. Born into a theatrical family, Chaplin’s father died of drink at the same time as his mother, unable to bear the poverty, suffered from bouts of insanity., From a childhood of grinding poverty in the south London slums, Chaplin found an escape in his early debut on the music hall stage, followed by his lucky break in The usa, the founding of United Artists with D.W. Griffith and Douglas Fairbanks, the struggle to take care of artistic regulate over his work, the string of failed marriages, and his eventual exile from Hollywood after personal scandals and persecution for his left-wing politics right through the McCarthy Era.Sir Charles ‘Charlie’ Chaplin (1895-1976) was once born in Walworth, London. Best known for his work in silent film, his most famous role was once The Little Tramp, a universally recognisable and iconic character who appeared in films such as The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925) and City Lights (1931)., His other films include Modern Times (1936), a observation on the Great Depression, and The Great Dictator (1940), a satirical attack on Hitler and the Nazis.If you enjoyed My Autobiography, you might like Andy Warhol’s The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, also to be had in Penguin Modern Classics.’Tells so much about this curious, difficult man … a wonderfully vivid imagination’The New York Times’The only genius to come out of the movie industry’George Bernard Shaw
