Linda,
That would be a joy to see! I wish something like that could be organized in New York...That would be a joy and a half...You've got a lovely site here.
Cheers,

Thanks Tom,
Good to 'see' you.

Japan has an active group of fans for Charlie Chaplin. They had a great event last year, as well.

Also, like to thank the Japanese fans who have supported Edna over the years.

In Edna's day, she was very popular with college students from Japan. Some of her Japanese fan letters still exist in the collection.

They loved Edna and still do!

Linda
