“Charlot was the hero of our times, a universal hero, the man who made the world both laugh and cry.
I merely wanted to record the Little Fellow’s story […]”
Published in French for the first time by Plon in 1931, then in its definitive version in 1957, Philippe Soupault’s Charlot has been reissued this year by Gallimard, a hundred years after the creation of Chaplin’s iconic Little Fellow.
This story is neither Charlie Chaplin’s biography nor a critical analysis of his films, but a biography of the Tramp character. Inspired by Chaplin’s films, Philippe Soupault tells his story.
The book is available in French on Amazon.
