Abstract: Using a version of an ergodic lemma due to Cuculescu and Foias, we prove a pointwise ergodic theorem for $L^1$-contractions which can be viewed as a perturbed version of the celebrated ergodic theorem of Chacon and Ornstein. Surprisingly, to some extent, the complex part of the iterates involved have no effect on the ergodic convergence.
