REVIEWS

I was amazed by the book. It really is the single most massively researched book
in Chaplin literature.

(DAVID ROBINSON - official Chaplin biographer)

I'm much enjoying 'Chaplin - Stage by Stage' - impossible to understand him,
or his career, without it.

(SIMON CALLOW - British actor, and book reviewer for The GUARDIAN)

'… a treasure trove of theatrical detective work, and an absolutely wonderful
resource for Chaplin fans.'

(Andrew Crumey - Scotland on Sunday)

CHARLIE CHAPLIN as Archibald Binks

Charlie as the drunk, Archibald Binks, from the US vaudeville tour of  A Night in a London Club. 1912

There are HUNDREDS of books covering the films of Charlie Chaplin,
but
'CHAPLIN - Stage by Stage' is the only one which
exclusively covers Charlie's pre-film stagework.

It contains over 550 confirmed appearances of Chaplin on stage,
between 1899 and November 1913 in:

England, Scotland, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey,
Northern Ireland, Southern Ireland,
Paris, Canada and the United States of America -
the vast majority of which were previously unknown.

If you have come to this site just to lift images, then you'll probably be disappointed.
However, if you buy the book, you won't be.
