Chaplin with Spanish screenwriter/director Edgar Neville on the set of City Lights, 1929

When Neville came to Hollywood from Madrid in 1929, he quickly became part of Chaplin’s inner circle and spent a great deal of time on the set of City Lights. He even had a small part in the film as a policeman which was later cut.
