Sunday, March 1st:
On this day eighty years ago, Charlie and Paulette were sailing the Pacific en route to Yokohama, Japan (from Honolulu).
Meanwhile, back at home, a charming interview with Chaplin appeared in the Chicago Tribune. In it, he reminisces about the fun he had making his early films and how they “whacked out” two films and week, protests the critics calling him “highbrow” (“they’ll ruin me if they keep that up,”) and jokes about making his sound debut as a singer. “I can’t sing at all,” he says.
From the Chicago Tribune, March 1st, 1936:
Coming up in Day By Day: 1936: Charlie and Paulette arrive at Yokohoma on March 6th.
