Charlie Chaplin Discovers Edna Purviance

Charlie Discovers Edna, A Wonderful Bit of Chance and Speculation
, is our latest article on ednapurviance.org.

Originally planned for release January 17th, 2005, I have just released on Edna. It is from research I found a few years ago about Edna and her life in Nevada and San Francisco.

How Charlie and Edna first met as been written many different ways, with each story having different versions. But this 'speculation' shines light on how Chaplin could have FIRST SEEN Edna, back in Jaunary 1915.

This is SECTION ONE of the story. The conclusion is to follow. (NOTE: A FLASH PLAYER IS USED FOR ONE OF THE IMAGES.)

What lovely pictures of Edna as a teen and a child! She looks like a little doll. :)

She was very pretty in her youth. And her famous smile during her film years stayed with her for life.
