A Woman of Paris: A Drama of Fate The Chaplin Collection (1923)

Marie St. Clair and her beau, aspiring artist Jean Millet, plan to leave their small French village for Paris, where they will marry. On the night before their scheduled departure, Marie climbs down from her second-floor bedroom for a rendezvous with Jean. Her stepfather sees them strolling down a lane and locks her out of the house. When the couple returns, Jean furiously knocks on the front door and reminds the older man that he's locked out his daughter. The stepfather dismisses Jean's complaint and tells Marie, "Perhaps (Jean) will give you a bed for the night."

Jean does invite Marie to his home, but he makes it clear that he lives with his parents and his mother will fix a bed for Marie. It turns out that Jean's parents are not thrilled with their son's romance with Marie, either. Marie goes to the train station, with Jean promising to follow her. But Jean's father has died while sitting in his chair in front of the fireplace, and when Jean telephones Marie at the station to tell her he can't go with her to Paris, she gets on the train and makes the trip alone.

In Paris, Marie enjoys a life of luxury as the mistress of wealthy businessman Pierre Revel. One night when Marie is alone in the apartment Revel has provided for her, a friend calls and invites her to a raucous party in the Latin Quarter. The friend gives Marie the address, but admits that she can't remember whether the apartment is in the building on the right or the left. Marie, arriving by taxi, enters the wrong building and is surprised to be greeted by Jean Millet. Marie tells Jean she would like for him to paint her portrait and gives him a card with her address.

Jean calls on Marie at her apartment to begin the painting, and Marie notices he is wearing a black armband. She asks why he is in mourning, and Jean tells her his father has died. Marie asks when and Jean replies, "The night you left."

Marie and Jean revive their romance, and Marie begins to distance herself from Pierre Revel. Pierre knows about Jean but also realizes that Marie has become fond of the luxuries she enjoys as his mistress.

Jean's mother, with whom he shares the simple Paris apartment, argues with him about marrying Marie. Jean starts to leave in anger but, after opening the door, leaves the door ajar as he goes to apologize to his mother. He tells his mother the proposal was spur-of-the-moment and not serious. Marie happens to arrive unexpectedly outside Jean's apartment at that moment. A chastened Marie returns to Pierre Revel.

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.



A Woman of Paris: A Drama of Fate The Chaplin Collection (1923)



• Introduction (5:11) — Biographer David Robinson surveys the "courageous" turns Chaplin took in A Woman of Paris. Three women inspired the story in colorful ways — the women in Chaplin's life were nothing if not colorful — and they receive due attention here. Robinson points out how Chaplin overturned the tropes of conventional Victorian melodrama, refining his own thoughts on film storytelling artistry as he did so.

• Chaplin Today - A Woman of Paris (26:26) — Here's one of the most engaging documentaries in The Chaplin Collection. Focusing chiefly on the innovations within A Woman of Paris and its influences on the filmmakers who came afterward, Mathias Ledoux employs ample vintage footage, audio remembrances from filmmaker Michael Powell and Chaplin's longtime cameraman Roland Totheroh, and new analysis from actress/director Liv Ulmann. Adolphe Menjou, via an old audio recording, recalls how he got Chaplin's attention in hopes of winning the role of the oily Parisian man-about-town, then discusses his experiences with the director's on-set working methods. Unless you're allergic to spoilers, watching this featurette first can only enhance your initial viewing of A Woman of Paris.

• Deleted Shots — Ten short snippets (selected individually) that Chaplin cut while composing his musical score for the 1976 reissue.

• United Artists (3:07) — This silent footage from May 1919 records Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and D.W. Griffith signing the contract to form their own film company, United Artists. Then the four celebrities — with Chaplin in his Tramp garb and makeup — pose and clown around for the press cameras. Remarkably well preserved.

• Paris in the 20s (10:00) — This silent film footage provides a time capsule of Paris streets, buildings, and people betwen the wars. It makes us wish were there drinking wine and smoking cigarettes with Hemingway and Gertrude Stein.

• Camille (1926) (32:44) — This amateur comedy (subtitled "or, The Fate of a Coquette") by Ralph Barton updates Alexandre Dumas fils' play La Dame aux Camelias to New York in the age of jazz and speakeasies. Its cast showcases an array of the era's intellectuals, authors, and personalities. The almost comically impressive dramatis personae includes Paul Robeson (as Dumas fils!), Anita Loos, Sinclair Lewis (as "Allegorical figures"), Theodore Dreiser ("Gas-House Gleason"), Sherwood Anderson ("Mr. X"), Clarence Darrow, Alfred Knopf ("Abd-el-Hamman, a white slave trader"), H.L. Mencken, Ethel Barrymore, W. Somerset Maugham, the Sultan of Morocco (as "Sultan of Morocco"), Max Reinhardt, Dorothy Gish, Wally Toscanini, Fanny Ward ("the Virgin Mary"), and some two dozen others including Chaplin, who presents a new rendition of the "Oceana Roll" dance from The Gold Rush. It's silent and in middling condition, and some contextual background information would be welcome — but, man, what a larkish romp from the celebrated smart set.

• Trailer (2:38) — The 1976 U.S. reissue trailer. That voice-over sure sounds like Dick Cavett.

• Photo Gallery — Four topic chapters serve up a selection of stills: Charles Chaplin directs A Woman of Paris (15 shots), Sets (24), Edna Purviance (17), Miscellaneous (23).

• The Chaplin Collection (10:42) — Again, the video montage of scenes from the films in The Chaplin Collection.
