Dust jacket notes: "Maurice Chevalier! The beloved boulevardier, the international Frenchman, the troubadour who remains the symbol of all that is gay and insouciant and debonair. This is the complete record of Chevalier's career...as a circus acrobat, as a singer of bawdy songs, as the dance partner and lover of Mistinguett, the most celebrated woman in the French musical theatre, and as the first great romantic musical star of sound motion pictures. His life and career is a kaleidoscopic history of some seventy years in show business: the circus, the music halls, the theatre, the silent screen, the great Hollywood musicals, television spectaculars, and, of course, the one-man show, which he pioneered. Lewis Funke wrote in The New York Times: 'Has there ever been a more ingratiating, more infectious performer in show business than this Maurice Chevalier, the symbol and personification of all that is meant by the phrase "Gay Paree"? Has there, indeed, been anyone more indomitable?' "The answer is in this carefully researched, magnificently illustrated treasury. Every film Chevalier made is documented, along with hundreds of stills and many rare candid photographs, including hitherto unpublished pictures from the artist's youth."
