The king of a small country somewhere in Europe is assaulted by the

A WOMAN OF PARIS
(Charlie Chaplin, 1923) 9 only-MLB4
Out of general public view for over 40 years, this film has been enormously
important in the history of the cinema. A WOMAN OF PARIS is one of
Chaplin's few dramatic films. Even so, its influence on narrative and char-
acter development techniques of such subsequent directors as Renoir and
Ford has been deep and lasting. Chaplin depicts the relationship between a
sensualist and his mistress with great restraint and compassion, avoiding
easy solutions and sermonizing. A master work from a master director. Edna
Purviance, Adolphe Menjou.
