This book explores the later period of Charlie Chaplin's life, an era often overlooked in biographies and retrospectives. Though not as iconic as his early years, Charlie's final chapters are a vital and idyllic part of the legend's story. Chris Wade explores Charlie and Oona's life together, the making of such films as Limelight and A Countess from Hong Kong, his relationship with his children, and his final years at the Manoir de Ban in Vevey, Switzerland. The book also features recollections from Carol Cleveland, who was directed by Chaplin in A Countess from Hong Kong, and his biographer David Robinson, who looks back on meeting Chaplin towards the end. This is a portrait of, as Charlie called himself, "a contented man".
