Many of those who knew the intimate Charlie Chaplin documented his life and their perceptions of him in their writings. One of the most fascinating and revealing of these accounts has, until now, been available only in French. May Reeves' portrait of Chaplin (as told to Claire Goll) covers their year-long relationship during his 1931-1932 vacation in Europe. The enigmatic actress and dancer Reeves, in chronicling her relationship with Chaplin, both elaborates on and offers contrasts to the popular impressions of her brilliant travelling companion. Constance Brown Kuriyama has translated Reeves' original Charlie Chaplin Intime into English, and also includes an introduction, and a translation of reminiscences by Chaplin's press agent, Carlyle T. Robinson, which until now have also been difficult to obtain.
