We've had this photograph on this blog before, but information on it turned up on another site recently. To be specific, a copy that had been published in CINE-MUNDIAL in 1928 with a caption which told which movie it was from.

Translation:"Charles Chaplin with Thelma Todd, the First National blonde, and the directors with same company, working on RITZY ROSIE."
RIZY ROSIE would eventually be released as NAUGHTY BABY, so this photo was taken during the production of that movie. NAUGHTY BABY was an Alice White movie and she was associated with Charlie Chaplin, so it's not surprising that he turned up during the production of this film.
One book on Chaplin had a date of 1935 on this photo and I've referred back to that myself in the past. Occasionally you see where the man on the left in this photo is referred to as Hal Roach, but he appears to be one of the people who was working on this movie*. The man on the right is Mervyn Leroy.

*I believe this is director Alfred Santell , who can also be seen in another picture with Thelma Todd and Alice White from NAUGHTY BABY.
Here is a message from beachgal concerning the location where these photos were taken:
I think I had put a comment on this in the first blog you had with the photo of Thelma and Charlie but will leave it here since I just ran into this blog now -- they are standing in front of The Breakers beach club at Santa Monica - there's a pretty good photo of it here http://www.antiquegamblingchips.com/breakers.htm - the photo of Alice White might have been taken behind one of those glass wind-breaks you can see in the photo link here - I have no association with the page this photo links to - I just know a lot about the various beach clubs along SM beaches through the years. Thought you might like to have a specific name to where they were standing.
