„Out of a clear sky the name came to him“

Editorial content. „,City Lights,‘ Title of

      Chaplin‘s New Comedy


      Motion Picture Editor Universal Service.

      LOS ANGELES, May 18. – You would never suspect

a small thing like a title would keep half of Hollywood

guessing. Charlie Chaplin just couldn‘t find a name that

conveyed the idea of his next comedy and he had

all his friends offering suggestions. Joseph Schenck came

through with one. Sam Goldwyn offered something

else and even Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks offered

to christen the unnamed child before they sailed for

Europe. But all offers were rejected.

      Charlie has his own ideas. Out of a clear sky the name

came to him and he was as much overjoyed as if

an unknown relative had suddenly died and left him a fortune.

He is calling his next comedy City Lights. It is a story

by Chaplin and it is promised to the fans for November.“
