Amazing book. Finally managed to knuckle down and have a good read about my favourite idol. Chaplin is flawless and a true beautiful genius. A must read if you have any interest in him at all. Incredibly detailed and informative as i've previously stated.
Stunning artist, performer, comedian, composer and director.
