Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard. 

These are gifs from a home movie with Chaplin and Paulette Goddard in a 1933 home movie on an ocean ship. Its title is All at See, and was discovered in 2004. It’s included as an extra to the Criterion version of Modern Times, although I don’t have it, but you can have a look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMPlnr3zfyI

I”m reblogging just for the gif bottom left :)

Alistair Cooke shot these when he, Charlie & Paulette were aboard the Panacea (Charlie’s boat).  Here is a link to an article - how Alistair Cooke’s daughter found these among her father’s personal effects 70 years after the fact.
