Chaplin’s World

Here’s a short news piece about the Chaplin’s World museum, which opened last month. It features some clips of Michael and Eugene talking about their father. There is also some nice home movie footage including a very short clip near the beginning of Charlie with his eldest son, Charlie, Jr., his daughter-in-law, Susan, and their daughter, Susan Maree, Charlie’s first grandchild, who was born in 1959. This footage was new to me.

Below are some photos of Charlie, Jr. and his daughter at the Manoir. Stepmom Oona is in the second photo. Fun tidbit: Charlie, Jr. and Oona were almost exactly the same age. They were born 9 days apart in May 1925 (Charlie: May 5th, Oona: May 14th)

  1. I didn't realize Charlie Jr had come over to Switzerland – I need to go check the book he wrote to see if he talked about it!
