Not long after Joan Barry filed the first paternity suit against Chaplin, federal prosecutors brought Mann Act charges against Charlie Chaplin in relation to Barry; he was acquitted.
Photograph caption dated March 28, 1944 reads, "Joan Barry, who starred in the first few days of testimony at Chaplin's trial, may make a return appearance to the witness stand today. Defense attorney, Jerry Giesler, in a surprise move, said he would ask permission to recall the red-haired girl to stand. Photo shows Miss Barry and Giesler."
