Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard, Hollywood Scandal.

       Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard
                       1936 film, "Smile."

Paulette Goddard wanted a career,
         Charlie Chaplin wanted a wife.

Of all his wives, Paulette Goddard, had the most successful film career and was remembered for her work, than being Mrs. Charles Chaplin.

During the time Paulette lived with Chaplin in his Beverly Hills home. Their marital status was a source of controversy and speculation. During most of their time together, both refused to comment on the matter.

Paulette, was in the running for Scarlet O'Hara, in 'Gone With the Wind',  however, questions over her marital status with Chaplin in an era of moral clauses, may have cost her the role.

Paulette Goddard's eyes were seen in several Maybelline ads during the 1940's, her busiest years as an actress, with Charlie Chaplin, who made her a star.

 Like so many actresses during the years of the Hollywood Star System, Paulette Goddard was seen in Maybelline ads, to boost her career and establish her image with the purity of, The Good Housekeeping
 Seal of Approval

 Charlie Chaplin was the most famous film star in the world before the end of World War I.  Chaplin used mime, slapstick and other visual comedy routines, and was most famous for his role as The Little Tramp.

Charlie and Paulette are the most popular post on the Maybelline Blog.

Tom Lyle Williams, owner of the Maybelline Company, adored Paulette Goddard.
