On a winter day in 1916 American capitalism, a world at war, and the emerging mecca of Hollywood intersect to spawn an enduring culture of celebrity. Charlie Chaplin is spotted in more than eight hundred places simultaneously, an extraordinary delusion that brings together the fortunes of three men: Leland Wheeler, son of the world's last (and worst) Wild West star, as he finds unexpected love on the battlefields of France; Hugo Black, drafted to fight under the towering General Edmund Ironside in America's doomed expedition against the Bolsheviks; and Chaplin himself, as he faces a tightening vise of complications--studio moguls, questions about his patriotism, his unchecked heart, and, most menacing of all, "his mother."

A snapshot of one moment in the life of Harry Houdini, focusing on the events of a single day -- May 1, 1908 -- and a single publicity stunt, in which Houdini leapt into the near-frozen Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts wearing only a bathing suit and shackled at the wrists and ankles, and though we know what to expect, he still pulls several surprises.

On a winter's day in 1916, Charlie Chaplin is spotted in over 800 places simultaneously - an extraordinary mass delusion in an America desperate for distraction from the oncoming war. From there, Sunnyside follows the overlapping fortunes of Leland Wheeler, son of the world's last (and worst) Wild West star, as he heads to the battlefields of France; snobbish Hugo Black, drafted to fight under the British General Ironside in Siberia in the Allies' doomed attack on the Bolsheviks; and Chaplin himself, facing a tightening net of complications - studio moguls, questions about his patriotism, his wayward heart, and most menacing of all, his mother - that stand in the way of his finally making a movie to match his talents

3 editions published in 2003 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 9 libraries worldwide
On 2nd August 1923, master magician Charles Carter makes the most daring performance of his life. Its climax features a battle with the devil himself, and this evening the President of the United States, Warren G. Harding, is taking part. Two hours later, President Harding is dead and Carter is the target of the secret services. Charles Carter is "Carter the Great", a name given him by supreme showman Harry Houdini. Carter had to become a magician: only at the moment of the performance, when an audience is brought together by a single experience, can Carter defeat his crippling fear of loneliness. But with every step into the 20th centry the stakes are growing higher. Science and the cinema are fast out-stripping even the master magician and that single magic moment. Hunted by those who believe him to be a murderer, he nevertheless rises again and again to delight his audience
