Is that a very bored-looking Charlie, Jr. in the background?

  1. Hi! Absolutely love your site!
    Is that Irene mayor-Selznick in the hood next to Hedy??
    It looks like a war benefit type thing, is Hedy sewing or something??

    1. It looks like Irene, doesn't it? The back of the photo says they are on a movie set. I wonder if it's the set of Hedy's film "White Cargo"?

  2. It could be Charlie Jr, but maybe it's more a lovesick expression? He tells of his puppy love of this woman in his book.

    1. Yes, it could definitely be that! I also thought it could be a "geez, dad's flirting with Hedy again" expression.

  3. I have a feeling that that is Paulette in the chair next to him, between Charlie and Charlie Jr. Not that it would stop him from flirting with anyone, or her as well! I bet they are at that Catalina restaurant again- the same one where they were photographed with Anita Loos and John Emerson.

    1. I thought that this may have been taken at that restaurant as well but I couldn't find any similarities in the decor. The only similarity I could find is that Charlie is wearing the same jacket.

      That could be Paulette. Like Charlie and Charlie, Jr, whoever it is is really tan. Plus, Charlie Jr looks pretty young. He would have been 15 when they split up and to me he looks younger than that here.
