Charlie & Raquel Meller are on the left. May Reeves is on the right.
Raquel Meller performed "La Violetera" as part of the opening program. May Reeves recalls the event: "During our stay at Juan-Les-Pins, City Lights premiered at Antibes. It was a great event for all the Côte d'Azur, heightened by the presence of Chaplin & Raquel Meller, who sang "La Violetera" with immense success. She admired Chaplin very much and asked him to write a scenario for her." (Reeves, The Intimate Charlie Chaplin)
