Charlie Chaplin grew up in and around the music room.His parents, aunt and friends all made their precarious lives on stage, and Chaplin himself began his career touring with a Music Hall dance troupe.His experiences of the culture of Music Hall have a major influence, shaping his style of acting and the movies he makes, is the most famous star, which tells the story of a failure interpreter of variety and evokes painful memories of his past.Chaplin was horrified to see how the lives of performers were destroyed when their audience turned against them, and he was relieved to exchange the stress of the live performance of the screen comedy live performance.Barry Anthony here tells the story of the life and career of Chaplin’s family and their music hall circle – from Eva Lester for Fred Karno to Chaplin Hannah Hill and Charles Chaplin’s parents to “The Great Calvero” himself.It reveals the difficult and often tragic life of London’s variety community in the late Victorian and Edwardian years, a period of great upheaval in the Music Hall and entertainment venues, and in so doing sheds important light on Chaplin’s source of inspiration for Genius, offering a fascinating new perspective on this popular twentieth-century cultural icon.
