Charlie Chaplin.

Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977).

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.
When he was five years old he was pulled onstage for the first time, and he didn't step off again for almost three-quarters of a century. 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.
Still is. . . . He comes to life in these pages. It's an astonishing rags-to-riches saga of an irrepressible kid whose childhood was dealt from the bottom of the deck.

LDF Notes: This collection tells about the lives of extraordinary people the world over. Lives made of dreams, actions, beliefs, successes but also mistakes and failure.



Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977).

Son personnage, Charlot, est universel, le premier et le plus grand des mythes créés par le cinéma. Lui, Charles Chaplin, né à Londres en 1889, est un génie complet du cinéma, acteur, metteur en scène, auteur, scénariste, producteur. Il est poussé par une rage de vivre et d'exprimer qui ne connaît aucune limite, qui ne fait aucune concession. Il a appris très tôt qu'il faut se battre pour survivre, pour sortir de la misère, pour se faire remarquer à Hollywood, pour faire les films qu'il veut. Les ambiguïtés de Charlot, violent et tendre, vagabond et chevaleresque, ce sont les siennes. L'Amérique d'après-guerre le maltraite : sa vie n'est pas assez morale, ses idées politiques pas assez rangées II rentre en Europe, en Suisse, et il continue à inventer un cinéma cruel et tendre. Le cinéma lui doit une capacité unique et universelle à faire naître l'émotion.

Notes LDF: Cette collection raconte des vies faites de projets, d'actions, d'oeuvres, mais aussi d''erreurs de d'échecs. Des vies qui montrent de quoi hommes et femmes sont capables.
