I love the story at the bottom how the greatest mind of the 20th Century Albert Einstein discovered the theory of relativity, as told to Charlie Chaplin by his wife in 1931.
Albert Einstein & Charlie Chaplin at the premier of “City Lights” 1931, Einstein and his wife were guests.
When Charlie was young boy poor, many times hungry, a mother who suffered with mental illness ultimately commited to a mental hospital or as they called them back then an insane asylum that he would one day be friends with the most signifcant man to Science with his theory of relativity the esteemed Albert Einstein.
I was just reading a book written in 1940 called Charlie Chaplin “King of Tragedy” (been suggested that many of the stories came from Charlie’s long time valet and right hand man Toraichi Kono)
I read a wonderful story in their told by Einsteins’ wife:
She spoke about the time he was deep in thought muddling about the house - appearing to be not doing anything - much as a writer with a creative block, he came into the living room walking about…toying with the piano - she left him be…he suddenly turned around and said I may have it…he went into his room stayed 2 days and when he came out had the theory of relativity…
