Charlie at Jack Pickford's wedding at Pickfair, 1922

Charlie is in the center. Jack Pickford and his new wife, Marilyn Miller, are in front of him walking down the steps.
Douglas Fairbanks is inside the door (hard to see) and Mary Pickford is right outside the door wearing a white hat with her
head turned away from the camera.

See footage of the wedding here.

A game of "Dougledyas" at the Fairbanks Studio, 1923

Dougledyas, or simply, Doug, was a game that was invented by Douglas Fairbanks. The rules were similar to tennis but six could play instead of four and a shuttlecock was used instead of a ball.

Front: CC & Douglas Fairbanks.
Standing (L-R): Raoul Walsh, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jack Pickford, C. Carlton Bingham

Footage of Jack Pickford's wedding to Marilyn Miller at Pickfair, 1922

Charlie can be seen around the :35 mark clowning with Mary Pickford and pretending to put a ring on her finger. He can also be seen briefly at the beginning (I think he is the one who closes the door after everyone files out) and end (around :50 mark). Douglas Fairbanks makes an appearance as well.
