Happy 4th Of July to fans in the U.S.

This video shows Charlie lighting fireworks off the balcony of Marion Davies’ beach home in Santa Monica, CA, July 4th, 1928. Also in the clip are William Randolph Hearst & Harold Lloyd who can be seen walking towards the camera at the end of the video. The music is Charlie’s own composition, “Sing A Song."

  1. Ha, I remember reading in the "My Father, Charlie Chaplin" book that Chaplin would worry about his two boys handling firecrackers and fireworks and spent time telling them how they could lose a hand or eye. If memory serves, the boys found them anyway!
