& Charlie Courts Fame

Charlie also won a place in the spotlight not long ago

during his suit against Charles Amador, known

on the screen as Charlie Aplin, and alleged by the Chaplin

forces to be an all-too-insistent imitator of the

well-known comedian‘s make-up and style. Charlie had to testify

in his own behalf and had to answer such

embarrassing questions as wether he thought he was

a good box-office attraction, or wether he felt

that his name really meant anything to the public, and cite sundry

other causes why he might consider himself an artist

of great appeal and popularity. Be it said for him that he met

the ordeal quite as an actor should, and we hope that

any time anybody else gets into the courts they will give an

equally serious and consistent performance.
