Charlie & Oona aboard the Queen Elizabeth heading to England, September 19, 1952

Charlie, Oona, and their family sailed from New York on this day in 1952. On their second day at sea, Chaplin had just finished having lunch with Arthur Rubinstein and Adolph Green when Harry Crocker, his publicist, received a telegram stating that his reentry permit had been revoked. According to Green’s son, the photos below were taken that very night.
