Buffalo Evening News, October 26, 1922

This photo was taken during the filming of Nice & Friendly (1922), a film Chaplin made as a wedding gift for the Mountbattens. The Neilsons, Pells, and Mr. Thompson also appear in the film. Another photo (here) taken the same day shows Charlie and the Mountbattens mowing the lawn.

Chaplin with Lord & Lady Mountbatten during the filming of Nice & Friendly, 1922


Nice & Friendly was a short film Chaplin made as a wedding present for the Mountbattens, who also starred in the film along with Jackie Coogan.

The film includes one of my favorite intertitles: "But many an honest heart beats beneath a pair of baggy trousers."

Watch the film here.
