"Living in Silence: Toraichi Kono" The untold story of the man who was personal valet and confidant to Charlie Chaplin, before facing charges of espionage on the eve of World War II. - Director, Philip Chung: Producers, Clyde Kusatsu, Timothy Lounibos and Nancy Yuen
Seeing some photos of Toraichi Kono in the Hill collection, I decided to place together some links about the documentary 'Living in Silence' about Kono (Chaplin's valet). Kono worked with Chaplin through the Mutual Film period to Modern Times.
Edna Purviance knew Kono, as did Edna's nephew Morgan Hill. It was Paulette Goddard who put an end to Kono's work with Chaplin. You can learn more at these links and by visiting Philip Chung's MySpace page.
