Chaplin & French car manufacturer, André Citroën, St. Moritz, Switzerland, 1932

In May Reeves’ book, she wrote about a picnic given by Citroën that she and Chaplin attended during their stay in St. Moritz. A clairvoyant was present and commented on various objects hidden by the guests. May handed him Charlie’s glasses through a friend (the psychic didn’t know whose they were). He commented that the glasses belonged to someone who has “reached the peak of success,” but didn’t say anything more. Afterwards, May took him aside and asked for more information. The psychic told her: “the person to whom these glasses belong will live to an advanced age, but will not die a natural death.” When May told Charlie this, he said “Oh well, since he granted me a long life, I’ll willingly accept a violent death!”
