|Gardel & Charlie are in the center. May Reeves is behind Charlie in white.|
The host of the party, Sadie Baron Wakefield, is in front on the left.
Carlyle Robinson is standing at far left. Notice Syd Chaplin peeking out at bottom right.
Charlie and May had only met a few days before this gathering and this
could easily be one of the first photos taken of them together.
|"An Argentine singer [Gardel],* accompanied by a guitarist, sang in Chaplin's honor|
while he slipped behind the bar, drank from an immense bottle of cognac,
and cut a gigantic tart with an enormous knife." (May Reeves, The Intimate Charlie Chaplin)
|Charlie performs for the guests.|
He mimed two of his favorite sketches: a French farce & a Japanese melodrama.
