Chaplin in Ischia, Italy, 1957

He was there to attend a premiere of his new film, A King In New York at the cinema Reginella. See Italian newsreel footage of his visit, which includes Charlie and Oona being carted around on a three-wheeled scooter taxi, here.

  1. so dapper. I wish men dressed as well as this now, and hes' not even wearing a tie this time! Still manages to look dapper in a sport shirt with a suit jacket. I think it's the hat.

    1. He always looked nice in a hat. I, too, wish men dressed this well now. These days men and women wear the same outfit whether they are going to the beach or out to dinner.

    2. Likewise! I hate the way some men and women dress these days, I believe people are entitled to ware whatever they want but it seems like no one puts any effort anymore. I just think why can't you dress like someone from the 1920's/30's/40s/50s etc. lol btw Charlie looks super dashing his not even trying yet still looks dashing.
