6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Lewis on May 11, 2005
Format: Library Binding
To me, this book is the most accurate and balanced portrayal of Chaplin of those writings by his lovers (Lita Grey and Georgia Hale's books leave much to be desired and are written SO MANY years after the fact). In the beginning, this work is most in line with the Chaplin we know and love onscreen...I enjoyed the tale of him miming as he tells May the story of a boat trip, the morning of which he took too many laxatives ("I don't believe I ever smiled so tragicomically..." he says). From her descriptions, you can almost see him telling such goofy stories. All in all, I felt this was a balanced portrayal of Chaplin's complexities and contradicitons. Recommended.
