Movie Name Please


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the name of a movie. This movie is set on the yacht of William Randolph Hearst where he is hosting a wild party in honor of someone's birthday. Hearst is enraptured with a young starlet, who is also being pursued by Charlie Chaplin, played by Robert Downey Jr. (I think). Hearst is very jealous of the starlet and is spying on his guests. He finds a gift that he has given the starlet in Chaplin's room, confirming his suspicions. Later, the startlet is sitting on the stairs in the yacht, talking over the situation with a friend. Hearst overhears, mistakenly thinks that the friend is Chaplin, and kills the friend. Hearst covers up the murder by docking early, keeping everyone on board while the body is disembarked and rushed home, and swearing everyone to secrecy. I think this is based on a murder that actually occurred but was never solved.
