Publisher's Summary

See him? That little tramp twitching a postage stamp of a mustache, politely lifting his bowler hat, and leaning on a bamboo cane with the confidence of a gentleman? A slapstick comedian, he blazed forth as the brightest movie star in the Hollywood heavens. Everyone knew Charlie - Charlie Chaplin.
Escaping the London slums of his tragic childhood, he took Hollywood like a conquistador with a Cockney accent. With his gift for pantomime in films that had not yet acquired vocal cords, he was soon rubbing elbows with royalty and dining on gold plates in his own Beverly Hills mansion. He was the most famous man on earth - and he was regarded as the funniest. He comes to life in this astonishing rags-to-riches saga of an irrepressible kid whose childhood was dealt from the bottom of the deck.

A brief Meander through the life of a star

Where does Sir Charlie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A very enjoyable listen, one of my favourites

What did you like best about this story?

I like Hollywood biographies so was very happy to find out more about Sir Charlie.

What about Fred Sullivan’s performance did you like?

He had a good voice and added to my enjoyment.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I didn't know much about Charlie's formative years, and was moved by the recounting of his childhood and early days.

Any additional comments?

I would have liked even more information, so perhaps I'll try another Chaplin biography that may give even more insight, but this was a good first step.
