Lita Grey Facts
Provided the name and some of the inspiration for Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita".

In 1932, she lost a two-month-long court battle with ex-husband Charles Chaplin to prevent her from starring with their two sons, seven-year-old Charles Chaplin Jr., and six-year-old Sydney Chaplin, in a proposed movie, "The Little Teacher." While Charlie was away on a foreign trip, Lita Grey signed a contract with director David Butler to co-star in the film with the Chaplin boys. Upon returning to the U.S., Chaplin filed suit against her on August 25th, on the grounds that he wanted his boys to lead a normal life. Chaplin's own boyhood had been disrupted by work. On October 26th, the court ruled in Chaplin's favor. The film was never made.

Portrayed by Deborah Moore in Chaplin (1992).
