Another mystery solved

In the latest issue of the French Chaplin-related publication "La Naissance de Charlot," Thierry Matthieu has identified the woman in these famous photos with Chaplin. She is definitely NOT Mary Thurman, as we have been lead to believe these last few years.

Matthieu himself reveals her identity here: www.silentcomedymafia.com

The photo he posts is from the Chicago Herald-Examiner, July 24th, 1921. What a find!

Thanks to Dominique for giving me a heads up on this new bit of info--and for letting me know about this Chaplin publication, which I knew nothing about. Too bad I don't read French!
