LITA GREY CHAPLINFirst Day of Issue postmark on a 11x8½ sheet bearing a reproduced image of an announcement of Charlie Chaplin's first comedy for Keystone First Day Cover Signed: "Lita G Chaplin", 11x8½. Signed in ink on a sheet postmarked Beverly Hills, California, May 27, 1975, a FIRST DAY OF ISSUE stamp honoring D. W. Griffith, and a reproduced image of an announcement the "first appearance in Keystone Comedies of Chas. Chaplin, the famous English pantomimist" and other films. Lita Grey (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. Filing holes at bottom edge. Corners lightly creased. Fine condition.
