what? No Paulette?? I saw some photos of her there later, in the late 30's, and those ones at the tennis court at San Simeon where Chaplin is serenading her with his racket. I wonder how Chaplin balanced Davies and Goddard - though didn't he take Lita there once or twice, too?
Yes, he did take Lita there and she and Davies became friends until she found out about their affair. I agree, it's interesting that Paulette isn't around. I remember reading that early in their relationship she went to NY a couple of times. I think her mother was living there then.
wait a minute…look again at the woman sitting in the tapestry chair…could it be??
I don't think it's her. There is another photo from this gathering (I don't have it posted) that shows this woman from a different angle. She's appears a bit heavier than Paulette.
In answer to the above, I think CC was way beyond and done with Marion at this point. If you look at the other photos, you can see she's not aging well...
I just came back from San Simeon, it was fabulous. I want to see it again sometime, so I can scope out where some of these photos were taken. I told the tour guide about your site and about all your great photos and info about the castle, as we were in a big discussion about Marion Davies. It was tres cool.
