A Woman of Paris
The legendary silent movie of manners, mores and morals, A Woman of Paris was the first Charlie Chaplin film in which he did not appear. Marie St. Clair (Edna Purviance) believes she has been jilted by her artist fianc?ean (Carl Miller) when he fails to meet her at the railway station. She goes off to Paris alone. A year later, mistress of wealthy Pierre Revel, (Adolphe Menjou) she meets Jean again. Misinterpreting events she bounces back and forth between apparent security and true love.
A King in New York
Charlie Chaplin's penultimate film - featuring his final starring performance - was made in 1957 but wasn't officially released in America until the '70s, when it, surprisingly enough, won an Oscar for Chaplin's score. What took so long? Thanks to his politics and unorthodox personal life, Chaplin was pretty roundly hated by the late '50s. Chaplin plays King Shahdov of Estrovia, on the run when revolution grips his homeland. In New York, despite the occasional indignity, he's treated as royalty until he takes a stand against the commie-hunters, a plot line that hit way too close to home at the time (Chaplin, remember, was ahead of everyone in attacking Hitler when he made The Great Dictator).
Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin
Richard Schickels new documentary Charlie chronicles Charles Chaplins brilliant career as an actor, writer, director, producer and composer as well as his controversial and much publicised private life - his love affairs and four marriages, his paternity suit scandal and persecution by the FBI, culminating in a self-imposed exile from the United States. With its brilliant observations, rare footage interwoven with scenes from Chaplins greatest films and a remarkable series of newly recorded interviews, Charlie is the definitive documentary overview of Chaplin and his Little Tramp. Among the long list of actors, friends and family paying tribute are Martin Scorsese, Johnny Depp, Woody Allen, Robert Downey JR, Milos Forman, Sir Richard Attenborough, Geraldine, Michael and Sydney Chaplin.
