The Charlie Chaplin speech from The Great Dictator is far from his only interesting moment, and there’s so much more to his movies and his life including the fact that he was chased through Santa Barbara by the press after he and Oona O’Neill received their marriage license.

There was no time for a Charlie Chaplin speech at the Santa Barbara Courthouse in 1943 as he and Oona quickly fled from the press, and of all the Charlie Chaplin movies shown 71 years later in the same courtyard, the choice was made to screen Modern Times for the public on August 22, 2014.
