  1. Very nice collection! Being press reports, many of course have the heavy publicist spin to them, deftly masking Chaplin's frequent marital problems and his deep personal dislike of Christmas.

    1. Yep, I especially liked the one that described what Charlie and Lita gave each other for Xmas as if they were the perfect married couple. But the truth is that they never spent Xmas together during their marriage.
