CHARLIE CHAPLIN VS. AMERICA When Art, Sex, and Politics Collided

by | Read by Phil Thron

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Scott Eyman, literary critic for the PALM BEACH POST, offers a biography of Hollywood icon Charlie Chaplin. The British actor bridged the transition from silent to talking films and started his own studio. Deep-voiced Phil Thron provides a workmanlike narration. While the audiobook is a biography overall, it focuses on the politics and personal circumstances that caused Chaplin's somewhat self-imposed exile from the U.S. Background information is shared about Chaplin's films CITY LIGHTS, MODERN TIMES, MONSIEUR VERDOUX, and, during his exile, the poorly received COUNTESS OF HONG KONG. While Tron's performance is unadorned, his anchorman style clearly recounts the turbulent times surrounding the genius that was Chaplin and his alter ego, The Little Tramp.
