Photos of Chaplin with his 162-lb marlin swordfish at Catalina Island, October 6th, 1918

Chaplin landed the fish in 22 minutes.
On the right is Capt. J. Edmundson, one of the Catalina Island boatmen.

Below are a couple of other photos that appear to have been taken the same day.

Chaplin, left, is pointing to the fish and to himself. Roscoe "Fatty"Arbuckle is on the right.
I'm not sure who the man in the middle is (Cecil Reynolds?)
