This report records Charlie’s last days at his Hollywood studio. On Sept. 6th (60 years ago today), Charlie and Oona left California for London for the premiere of Limelight. Once at sea, Charlie learned that his reentry permit had been revoked by the U.S. government. He did not return to America until 1972 when he was awarded an Honorary Oscar.
