Publisher's Summary

The life of the silent film and comedy icon, in his own words - "the best autobiography every ever written by an actor...an astonishing work" (Chicago Tribune).

Take an unforgettable journey with the man George Bernard Shaw called "the only genius to come out of the movie industry" as he moves from his impoverished South London childhood to the heights of Hollywood wealth and fame; from the McCarthy-era investigations to his founding of United Artists to his "reverse migration" back to Europe.

Charlie Chaplin's heartfelt and hilarious autobiography - one of the very first celebrity memoirs - tells the story of his life, showcasing all the charms, peculiarities and deeply-held beliefs that made him such an endearing and lasting character.

My Autobiography offers dedicated Chaplin fans and casual admirers alike an astonishing glimpse into the heart and the mind of Hollywood's original genius maverick.

Finally Chaplin’s auto is available!

Been waiting a long time for Charlie to be on Audible and this version doesn’t disappoint. I never truly realize how much name dropping Charlie does in his auto. But how couldn’t he since he was arguably the most famous person on the planet for many years in the first half of the 20th century. I have an old copy at home but I hadn’t read it in many years so this was like reading it new. The narrator does a great job. Captures and embodies the spirit of the all time great cinematic artist.

A True Genius and a Wonderful Man

Charlie Chaplin was a truly wonderful man and an incredible genius. He never forgot who he was or the poverty from which he came. A compassionate and loving person. Very few books have impacted me as much as this one. I am so very sorry that our government (McCarthyism) treated him so poorly in his later life. For what? I wish that I could have known him.
