Chaplin on the witness stand during the Charles Amador trial, Feb. 26, 1925

Los Angeles Times, February 27, 1925

On this particular day of testimony, Chaplin was asked whether an actor’s success affects his personal life. “I cannot answer that,” he responded with a smile. Had his own popularity been impaired during the past six months? “I don’t know,” he said.

He was then asked if the booking of his forthcoming film, The Gold Rush, had been canceled because the Club Women Of Los Angeles objected to it. He sat with his lips tightened while his attorneys objected and argued. Chaplin was finally given permission to answer. “Positively untrue,” he replied, leaning forward. “It’s a lie.”
