"Paulette Goddard: The Unsung Star of the Golden Age of Hollywood"

 


Paulette Goddard was one of Hollywood's most private stars. She kept her personal life hidden from the public and rarely gave interviews. For that reason, there are many secrets about her that we still don't know.


One mystery is why she and Charlie Chaplin divorced. Some say it was because Goddard wanted to have children and Chaplin didn't, while others believe that Chaplin was unfaithful.


What we do know is that Goddard was incredibly talented both on screen and off. She starred in some of the biggest films of the 1930s and 1940s, including "The Great Dictator" and "The cat and the canary". She was also a successful businesswoman, founding her own production company in 1946.

 

Despite her success, Goddard always remained quite guarded about her personal life.



One mystery is why she and Charlie Chaplin divorced. Some say it was because Goddard wanted to have children and Chaplin didn't, while others believe that Chaplin was unfaithful.


Goddard was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1910. After making her film debut in 1933, she quickly rose to fame, appearing in a number of hit movies during the 1930s. However, Goddard's private life was shrouded in secrecy. She married Charlie Chaplin in 1936, but the couple divorced two years later.


Born in Manhattan and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Goddard initially began her career as a child fashion model and performer in several Broadway productions as a Ziegfeld Girl. In the early 1930s, she moved to Hollywood and gained notoriety as the romantic partner of actor and comedian Charlie Chaplin, appearing as his leading lady in Modern Times (1936) and The Great Dictator (1940). After signing with Paramount Pictures, Goddard became one of the studio's biggest stars with roles in The Cat and the Canary (1939) with Bob Hope, The Women (1939) with Joan Crawford, North West Mounted Police (1940) with Gary Cooper, Reap the Wild Wind (1942) with John Wayne and Susan Hayward, So Proudly We Hail! (1943) — for which she received a nomination for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress  Kitty (1945) with Ray Milland, and Unconquered (1947) with Gary Cooper.
