Music composed by Charles Chaplin (1952-76)
Posthumous Musical associate: Timothy Brock
Based on original material for A Woman of Paris written in 1976 and piano recordings made by Chaplin in 1952-1969, Timothy Brock’s 2005 restoration/reconstruction of the score uses hitherto unheard compositions by Chaplin
Against the wishes of their tyrannical parents, Jean and Marie decide to elope to Paris but the sudden death of Jean’s father makes it impossible for him to meet her at the station, and Marie heads for Paris alone. A year later, Jean finds her in the arms of a rich and decadent playboy… and tragedy ensues. Highly acclaimed by filmmakers from Lubitsch to Scorsese, this brilliant yet subtle Parisian fresco reveals the dramatic genius of the King of Comedy.
