Manvell demonstrates how Chaplin's destitute childhood and early stage experience led to the creation of the archetypal little tramp and the evolution from of the star's art from simple slapstick to its unique blend of social commentary and boisterous comedy. Also addressing Chaplin's vitality in the political arena, the book explores the suspicion of his detractors and accusations relating to Communism.
