Tramp : the life of Charlie Chaplin by Joyce Milton( Book )

British-born Charlie Chaplin was not only the world's first international movie star but one of the most loved, hated, and gossiped-about figures in film history. In her colorful and absorbing biography of the mercurial Chaplin, Joyce Milton takes us from his childhood in the London slums and his early days as a music hall entertainer through his meteoric rise and the full flowering of his artistic genius in the American film world to his exile in Europe during the 1950s, the heyday of McCarthyism and Red-baiting. The Keystone comedies era and Chaplin's emergence as a star and director make a fascinating story, peopled by the likes of Mack Sennett, Fatty Arbuckle, Mabel Normand, Wallace Beery, and Edna Purviance. His founding of United Artists in 1919, with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, was seminal, giving him a control over his own films that no other writer, actor, or director could hope for under the studio system at the time
