• Paulette Goddard

A piece taken from an autograph album, dated Sept.17th 1936 and signed by Paulette Goddard, the American actress who started out as a child fashion model and performed in several Broadway productions as a Ziegfeld Girl before becoming a major star of the Paramount Studio in the 1940s. Goddard was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in 1943's So Proudly We Hail! She had signed her first film contract in 1932, with producer Samuel Goldwyn, to appear as a chorus girl in The Kid from Spain, but Goddard and Goldwyn did not get along, and she soon started working for Hal Roach Studios, appearing in a string of uncredited supporting roles for the next few years. In 1934, Goddard began a relationship with Charlie Chaplin and later moved into his Beverly Hills home. He cast her as his leading lady in Modern Times in 1936, and they were reportedly married in secret in Canton, China in June of that year, but aside from referring to Goddard as "my wife" at the October 1940 premiere of The Great Dictator, neither Goddard nor Chaplin publicly commented on their marital status. On June 4, 1942, Goddard was granted a Mexican divorce from Chaplin, and in May 1944 married Burgess Meredith at David O. Selznick's Beverly Hills home. They divorced in June 1949
