Film critic and Charlie Chaplin fan Richard Schickel (Time magazine) is also the maker of an award-winning documentary about this great, but troubled comedian. In this volume, he presents more than 30 essays on Chaplin's life and art, culled from a broad range of writings. Contributors include Andrew Sarris, Frances Hackett, Winston Churchill, Max Eastman, and Graham Greene. Schickel provides an overview of Chaplin's career in the introduction and also reflects on the uneasy relationship between intellectual cinephiles and popular filmmakers.
