|Chaplin with his attorney, Gavin McNab, August 1927|
By himself--with and without his hat, August 1927
Later that day Chaplin visited his studio but according to Bergman, he kept to himself most of the time. "He is hopeless and doesn't want company. He is not avoiding anyone but he would rather be by himself." Charlie visited Henry's restaurant on Hollywood Blvd twice and there "nodded carelessly to friends and acquaintences." When he did not return home Syd's house that evening it was thought that he was likely out driving by himself.3
*A settlement would be reached by the 19th and the divorce granted on the 22nd.
