Facts about

Chaplin sailed to London for the 16 Oct 1952 world premiere, but his re-entry permit was revoked after he left because of suspected Communist Party ties. After showings of "Limelight" in New York and other east coast cities, an anti-Chaplin frenzy caused cancellation of showings in other cities.
Chaplin's theme from "Limelight" was a hit in the 1950s under the title "Eternally."
