"I am Charlie Chaplin, Jr.!"

A couple of days ago I posted an interview with Charlie from 1921. So today, on what would have been his 91st birthday, here is an interview with his eldest son, Charlie, Jr., from 1950. At 25, he already seems overwhelmed by the burden of having his father's name.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, July 8th, 1950

  1. Interesting to note that one of the authors, Jinx Falkenburg, was dated by Chaplin a few years before that interview, and before he met Oona...

    1. That's right. I thought that was interesting as well.
      The co-author, Tex McCrary, was her husband.
