Charlie Chaplin vs America by Scott Eyman

Staff Pick

Before Taylor, before Spongebob, before Lebron, there was Charlie Chaplin--an instantly recognizable global celebrity. Yet in 1952, the silent comedy star was banned from returning to the United States and spent the rest of his life in exile. Eyman's masterful, suspenseful narrative explains how a combination of the FBI, conservative gossip columnists, and anti-Communist zealots conspired against a complex artist who believed his only crime was to want to make his audience laugh.
