Charlie and Oona arrive in Switzerland, December 5th, 1952

Although Chaplin tells a reporter that they only plan to stay until Christmas (they spent the holidays at the Beau Rivage in Lausanne), their main reason for coming to Switzerland was to find a permanent place to live. They were anxious to find something quickly because Oona was now pregnant with their fifth child (Eugene). One month later, on January 5th, Chaplin purchased his final home, the Manoir de Ban, in Corsier-sur-Vevey.
