Andre Charlot

£18.99

Product description

Andre Charlot: the genius of intimate musical review by James Ross Moore. Published by McFarland Books 2005. Paperback. In very good condition.

Theatrical producer Andre Charlot brought Parisian revue to Great Britain in 1912 and dominated his field for 25 years. He greatly influenced American musical theatre with Charlot's London Revue in New York in 1924. He created the kind of theatrical revue the world came to identify as British, and was known for discovering and nurturing some of the greatest personalities in the century's musical theatre, including Beatrice Lillie, Gertrude Lawrence, Jack Buchanan, and Noel Coward. This biography, researched from sources including his personal memoirs, covers Charlot's life and career from his youth in Paris to his time in Edwardian and inter-war London, concluding with his final years in Hollywood playing all-purpose Europeans in B-movies and his death in 1956. Two unpublished essays by Andre Charlot are included as appendices: ""Beverly Hills, 1937"" and ""A Quiet Game of Bridge."" The work is illustrated with family photographs from all periods of Charlot's life, production photographs from his revues, drawings, cartoons from British newspapers and magazines, and production stills of Charlot as an actor from American films.
