& Amador Case Settled;

He‘ll Make More Films

Los Angeles, July 14. Superior Court Judge J. L. Hudner

in a final decision filed with the County Clerk

restrains Charles Amador, film comedian, from dealing

in or advertising any motion picture in which

the role created by Charlie Chaplin is played which will be likely

to deceive the public or motion picture exhibitors into

believing Chaplin is playing the role or part. However, under

the decision Amador is permitted to use the same

of „Charlie Aplin“ declared that they would begin immediately

to make pictures starring Amador under his proper name.
