Day By Day: 1936

Saturday, May 9th: The Chaplin party departs Hong Kong aboard the Japanese ship, Kashima Maru, bound for Shanghai.

Upon leaving Chaplin told the press that he needed to be back in the States by the end of June in order to comply with U.S. immigration laws:

Hong Kong Daily Press, May 11th, 1936

I'm not sure why U.S. Immigration said he had to be back at the end of June. If he was allowed six months, he should have had until August since they left in February. Nevertheless, he returned on June 4th.

Coming up: Chaplin has a chance meeting with a famous French poet/playwright somewhere between Hong Kong and Shanghai.
