LITA GREY CHAPLIN
Autograph Sentiment on the back of a Texas police patrolman's card
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Best Wishes/Lita Grey Chaplin", 3½x2 Signed on blank side of the business card of a Del Rio, Texas Police patrolman James Knower. Lita Grey Chaplin (born Lillita Louise MacMurray, 1908-1995) had minor roles in two of Charlie Chaplin's films, The Kid and The Idle Class (both 1921). She became pregnant with Chaplin's child, and - fearing prosecution for having sex with a minor - he married her in 1924. They had two sons, but the marriage was an unhappy one. They divorced in 1927, after a scandal-producing trial and the largest divorce settlement in history up to that time. She wrote two autobiographies, including Wife of the Life of the Party (1995). Chaplin biographer Joyce Milton asserts that Nabokov's Lolita was inspired by the Grey-Chaplin marriage. Fine condition.
