Chaplin: His Life And Art
Robinson David

Paperback $29.99 - Penguin UK
Biography & Memoir - Published: 29/Jan/2014 - ISBN: 9780141977508

Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) revolutionized the language of cinema and became one of the most loved performers of all time. But he was also a man plagued by loneliness and driven by the search for artistic perfection.

His life was an extraordinarily dramatic one, and David Robinson explores the often tragic story of Chaplin's alcoholic father; his mentally disturbed mother; his marriages to very young women; the 'white slavery' case against him; and his persecution by anti-Communist forces during the McCarthy era, which ultimately forced Chaplin to leave America.
