Charles At Home

There’s a lot to ponder here.

One thought: I’m a little suspect of this “home.”  Granted that these were taken sometime in the late 40s or early 50s (judging by Charles age), so the kids would be out of the house and off at college, but let’s remember that this man was still a married man.  Does this place look like a woman has ever stepped foot inside?

Does this look like the home of an independently wealthy movie star?

I’ve seen a few of these publicity department portraits from this period.  Enough to wonder if this wasn’t some sort of set.

Besides, as good a sport as Charles clearly was, I imagine he was still a rather private person.
