"Imagination means nothing without doing." - Charlie Chaplin

  • This extra-large tome follows the making of every one of Charlie Chaplin's films.
  • Reveals the process behind the Chaplin genius, from the impromptu invention of early shots to the meticulous retakes and reworking of scenes and gags in his classic movies: The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), The Circus (1928), City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), and the provocative Hitler parody The Great Dictator (1940).
  • Includes: 
    • The Chaplin life history in words and pictures
    • 900 images including many previously unseen stills, on-set photos, memos, documents, storyboards, posters, and designs, plus scripts and images for unmade films
    • An oral history, told from the point of view of Chaplin himself, drawing upon his extensive writings, many of which have never been reprinted before.
    • Supplementary interviews with some of his closest collaborators.
    • Material from over 150 books of press clippings in Chaplin’s archives, which range from his early days in music halls to his death
    • Chaplin’s short films, from Making a Living (1914) to The Pilgrim (1923), as well as all of his feature-length movies, from The Kid (1921) to A Countess from Hong Kong (1967)
