Summary "London, 1913. Fourteen-year-old Billy Bean is a thief. He's also a talented street performer, and he's picked up by Fred Karno's music hall company [that features Charlie Chaplin]. Then Charlie Chaplin leaves Karno for the movies, and Billy is sent to America to replace him. Billy also wants to work in movies, too, and it's not too long before he gets his lucky break. But his luck runs out and the movie career goes badly. Soon he's on the streets again, with nothing but his childhood skills and a cheeky grin to keep him from starvation"--Provided by publisher.
