Charlie Chaplin, in the flesh, will be in Hongkong next March, accompanied by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Efforts will also be made to induce D. W. Griffith to join the party. This news was given yesterday by Mr. George Mooser, a well-known play producer and film manager. He is the managing director in the Far East of United Artists' Corporation, consisting of the above named film stars. In addition, Mr. Mooser's 11 year old daughter, Georgie, appeared in Hongkong in 1918 in the A.D.C. production 'Pinky and the Fairies.' It is noted that Mr. Mooser is leaving for Tokyo where he is engaged in a lawsuit. In particular, the case involved the piracy including 'Way Down East' and 'Three Musketeers.' The latter will shortly be produced at the Hongkong Theatre Royal. The news article also stated that Douglas Fairbanks has just completed a picture entitled 'Robin Hood.'
