Photoplay, October 1930 (click to enlarge)

Find the mistakes below (click to enlarge): *Mistake spoilers past this point*


I'm thinking most of you didn't find all 20 because some of the "mistakes" aren't really mistakes:

 #10 is incorrect. Chaplin smoked until the early 1940s. #11 is partially true. Chaplin had originally planned to have the theme song, "La Violatera" played on a phonograph during the film. #13 is incorrect. The theme song was composed by Jose Padilla although Chaplin did not originally credit him.  #18 is incorrect. He did attend school but not past the third or fourth grade.

  1. I just started the David Robinson biography. Chaplin: His Life and Art. He is very thorough. I'm not quite ready for the quiz.

    1. The Chaplin shot is from "Behind The Screen." Here is the original.

      I'm not sure about the Mary Pickford photo.
