With Paulette at the Brown Derby, October 1938

Charlie and Paulette seem very happy and relaxed here, but according to this snippet from a November 1936 issue of Movie Classic, that was not always the case:


  1. I would love to have been a fly on the wall during their little spat.

    1. A friend of mine was telling me recently about something she read in a book by Margaret Talbot about her father, Lyle, who recalled a visit to San Simeon. Charlie was in a room with the drinkers and Paulette called him on a house phone and you could hear her through the receiver from her quarters yelling, "Get your ass over here!" I think only Paulette could talk to Charlie like that. I don't see Mildred or Lita telling Charlie to get his ass anywhere.
