    Many biographers have tackled the complex life & career of Charlie Chaplin, himself included. I have read many of them, including his autobiography. This one stands out in great care in being thoughtful & tasteful. An honest and penetrating pondering of his films, which very much drew inspiration from, and was tightly bound with Chaplin in his personal life as well. Thankfully, there is neither gushing nor smart-ass critiquing for the sake of distasteful, sensationalist argument here. That this book is not mandatory on film schools' recommended readings list around the country is in my opinion, another attribution to the fall of our educational system.

    There is alot here to see & read about on the greatest genius of film ever,Mr. Charlie Chaplin!I read this back in 2011 while working a night shift & around the same time,i found the "Chaplin At Keystone: An International Collaboration of 34 Original Films" DVD set and it just blew me away!I had access to both this book & the DVD set from the library,but someday i would love to own both, because they have such a well put together charm to them...just fascinating & spellbinding!In this book,"Vance describes in detail the atmosphere on Chaplin's film sets and his relationships with the cast and crew, his first attempts at comedy sequences that later became famous, and the main themes and ideas that persist through the major Chaplin films. Chaplin's rags-to-riches life story is also represented in these pages, every stage of which is documented in photographs" that are just beautiful...such a detailed photo-biography! After/during reading this,I watched the remastered DVDs of Chaplin's films with a new found appreciation and understanding of the man's work...This book is worth whatever price tag is currently on it, for sure.
