Chaplin without Charlie

January 17 - 23

An actor/director whose films centered resonantly on his own persona (usually the iconic Little Tramp character), Charles Chaplin made two films in which he appears only in brief cameo roles. They are among his most adventurous and offbeat works, although both encountered resistance from critics and public. His silent feature A WOMAN OF PARIS has since been widely acclaimed as a landmark of sophisticated comedy. His final film A COUNTESS FROM HONG KONG, presented in a new 4K digital restoration, still awaits the reevaluation and recognition that a growing number of critics think it deserves. (MR)
