Charlie Chaplin`s only novella `Footlights` published after 66 years
London: Charlie Chaplin`s only known novella has finally been published 66 years after it was written.
Chaplin`s biographer, David Robinson has reconstructed `Footlights`, which is the basis for his 1952 film `Limelight`, after it was uncovered in the Chaplin archive at the Cineteca di Bologna in Italy.
The novella, which consists of 70 pages and contains around 34,000 words, will be launched at BFI Southbank in London during an event to mark the centenary of Chaplin`s `Little Tramp` character.
` Footlights` is being published as part of a larger book called `The World of Limelight ` compiled and written by Robinson.
