Abstract

Emancipation comes in a wide variety of forms. Here, key surrealists rally to the defense of Charlie Chaplin after the publication of Lita Grey Chaplin’s divorce filing of 10 January 1927 as a paperback book entitled The Complaint of Lita. The surrealists took the complaint against Chaplin—one of their idols—as an indication of the Puritanism and hypocrisy of the United States and, in their view, of the repugnant valorization of marriage and procreation in bourgeois culture, while concomitantly indicting the opportunism of Grey.
