Publisher's Summary

Born on this day in 1923, Marceau maintained that he created the character he mimed, Bip the Clown, as a figure of hope. During a speech when he received a humanitarian award at the University of Michigan, he said that he drew on elements from history and cinema to create Bip’s name—which riffs off the character Pip from Great Expectations—and his look.
