Brilliance in a Bowler Hat – The Charlie Chaplin Archives

Delving into the archives of slapstick genius

Derived from the XXL book that left no document unturned in the vast Chaplin archives, this new edition follows the making of each of the master’s films through personal letters and memos, sketches, storyboards, posters, on-set photos, and an oral history from Chaplin and some of his closest collaborators. We discover the impromptu invention as well as the meticulous planning that made Chaplin the first international film star.
