Charlie Chaplin Centennial 1914-2014

Charlie Chaplin is for the ages

24 notes

These are some Lobby Cards for "A WOMAN OF PARIS", this was the first film that had Charlie Chaplin’s name attached but he did not star in.

A Woman of Paris is a feature-length silent film that debuted in 1923. The film, an atypical drama film for its creator, was written, directed, produced and later scored by Charlie Chaplin. It is also known as A Woman of Paris: A Drama of Fate

Charlie had hoped that this film would start Edna Purviance (his long time leading lady) towards a dramatic career of her own but it did not work out for her, it did help Adolphe Menjou with his career though.

A Woman of Paris was praised by the critics but the public stayed away,  seems they did not want to go see a Charlie Chaplin film that he was not in.
