The first icon of the silver screen, Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp remains one of cinema's most memorable characters. In this 'brief' biography, Ackroyd explores the character behind the bowler hat and baggy trousers, tracing Chaplin's progress from a background of estranged, alcoholic parents and workhouses in London, to the artistic achievements as actor and director in Hollywood that would make him 'the most famous man on earth'. American-cut pages.
