Introducing Edna Purviance

Famous comedian from the very first days of motion pictures Charlie Chaplin moved to Chicago to make films for the Essanay Film Manufacturing Company. After making his first movie at the Essanay studio on Wells street during the ferocious winter of 1915, Charlie decided that the Essanay west coast studio in Niles, California would be a much better place to make his movies. Studio janitor Ben Turpin and several others from the Chicago studio agreed with him and also went to California to be a part of his movies, but Charles Chaplin needed to find a beautiful young girl to play in his movies - the very first motion picture producers already knew that 'sex sells' - and even drunken comedies involving funny men needed a beautiful girl floating around. While in San Francisco one day Charles Chaplin met a young stenographer named Olga Edna Purviance, and she agreed to quit her job and make moving pictures with Charlie. This was her first appearance in movies, as the wife of the very large and threatening head waiter. Edna continued acting in movies produced by Charles Chaplin until her final movie appearance in Charlie Chaplin's famous 1952 movie Limelight. Chaplin and Edna remained great friends all their lives and even after her final movie appearance Chaplin continued paying Edna a salary until her death in 1958. Charles Chaplin had a couple of failed marriages, and some believe that if he and Edna had married instead Charlie might have avoided marital scandal and had a much happier home life. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the first movie with Edna Purviance and the great comedian Charles Chaplin.
