Details: 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 fiancé Jean (Carl Miller) when he fails to meet her at the railway station. She goes off to Paris alone and 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
The eternal clown, Charlie Chaplin believed that the best solution to any problem was to poke fun at it. Thus, as fascism was the target of The Great Dictator, the ills he saw in 1950s society were the targets at which he shot his satirical arrows in A King in New York. Chaplin plays King Shahdov of Estrovia, an overthrown monarch who arrives in New York to find that his Prime Minister has absconded with all his funds. Running up massive bills in his hotel, he is persuaded to make television commercials. Meanwhile, the monarch meets a precocious lad who is being harassed by government agents to betray his parents.
Frustrated by a society that pays enormous sums of money to buffoons and hucksters while undermining its own constitution is eventually too much for the monarch, and he leaves the country, but not before he passes on to the young boy the hope for a better future.
Charlie Chaplin's penultimate film featuring his final starring performance won an Oscar for Chaplin's score.
Charlie: The Life And Art Of Charles Chaplin
Richard Schickel's new documentary Charlie chronicles Charles Chaplin's 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, rarefootage interwoven with scenes from Chaplin's 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.
