Charlie, Paulette, and friends at the Brown Derby, 1939

L-R: Reginald Gardiner, Basil Bleck, CC, Lillian Bleck (Sylvia Fairbanks' sister), Paulette Goddard,
Sylvia Fairbanks, Douglas Fairbanks, Alexander Korda, Merle Oberon.

Note that Paulette is wearing the famous diamond and emerald bracelet that Chaplin supposedly gave to her when she lost the role of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind. She must have adored this piece of jewelry because she wore it often (see more photos here). She even wore it in her first scene in the 1939 film The Women (below):
