  Timothy Brock - Essays and Articles - A Woman of Paris
The dilemma of the 1977 version of the score to A Woman of Paris is a complex one, and for me, a source of mixed feelings.
However for A Woman of Paris, my 8th score restoration for the Chaplins, the goal was the same, but more than few educated guesses and well-thought-out liberties had to be taken.
So in co-operation with the Chaplin family, I carefully proceeded to create a new score for A Woman of Paris, by using both the recently un-earthed dramatic compositions of 1951, and reconfiguring some of the existing themes from the 1977 score, but more in the manner of previous Chaplin treatments of his own material.

American artists, male and female, were drawn to Paris by the strength of the dollar between the wars, the availability of good food and wine (especially alluring during Prohibition), and by its reputation as a haven for artists.

 A Woman of Paris: A Drama of Fate (1923)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
The second film in my somewhat unusual Charles Chaplin double feature (after the delightfully fl 'Monsieur Verdoux (1947)'), 'A Woman of Paris' is perhaps the silent comedy master's least mentioned film, perhaps partly due to it not actually being a comedy, or because Chaplin himself appears only in a very brief cameo role.
Written, produced and directed by Chaplin, 'A Woman of Paris' is a tightly-paced drama/romance, employing a lot of dialogue (somewhat unusual for Chaplin, who usually relied on extended slapstick comedic set pieces to drive his silent films) and a three-way relationship that has since become commonplace in films of this sort.
Perhaps perceived as a harmful satire of the American way of life, 'A Woman of Paris' was banned in several US states on the grounds of immorality, and it was a commercial flop.
