LITA GREY CHAPLIN Extremely rare! Black and white photograph of the actress, wearing a beaded dress with large floral shoulder piece Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Lita Grey Chaplin" B/w 8x10. 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. Signature in poor contrast. Lightly silvered. Lightly worn at edges. 7-inch vertical crease (affecting "Grey" in signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
