Happy birthday, Charles Chaplin, Jr. (May 5, 1925 - March 20, 1968)

Charlie, Jr. with his father...
...and with his mother, Lita Grey Chaplin.


  1. of all the chplin kids, he's the one who makes me saddest.
    happy birthday, charlie jr.

  2. Me, too. Loved his book about growing up in Hollywood with and without his father, and appreciated his thorough insights to his father's behaviors. He paid a heavy price for bearing his father's name.

  3. To think Lita was only 16 on that picture is a little creepy. She seemed a young woman, though, not just a teenager. The boys she had with Charlie looked a lot like her.

  4. I think it's the hairstyles and style of dress that do it. They all appear to look older due to that.
