Redmond was a deaf painter who kept a studio on Chaplin's lot and had bit parts in a few of his films. In The Kid he plays a friend of the father.

  1. Have you seen his plein air paintings? They're quite good. I think you can find them online.

  2. Oh my God! Jessica, where did you find this photo? It's beautiful. You find the most amazing things!!! I love seeing evidence like this of Jackie bonding not only with CC, but also with others on the set. Way cool!

    1. Thank you! It was published in Pictorial Review, Feb. 1927. It accompanied one of Jim Tully's articles about Chaplin.
