This group shot from 1918 shows Helen and friends on a movie set, with the camera behind them. On the far left is Polly Thompson, then Anne, Helen, and Charlie Chaplin, a major comic film actor from the era of silent movies. Behind them all are many film props, such as signs and furniture. Chaplin is in his signature look of big, dark eyebrows, dark eyes (lined in eyeliner!), and a dark bushy moustache. Helen has her left hand on his shoulder and her right hand on Anne's mouth, feeling her speak. Both Helen and Anne have furs draped on their shoulders.
