Charlie and Oona leaving a Soviet ship in Long Beach harbor after attending a screening of a Russian movie, 1946.

News photographers overheard Chaplin say, in reference to the Customs officials who were on board, “Oh, I see we are under the power of the American Gestapo.”  This remark made headlines the next day and later turned up in Chaplin’s FBI file.
