A woman of Paris (1923)

– Well.

– Well.

– Well.

Proud, belligerent, merciless fathers. A man torn between wishes and duties. An abandoned woman going from rags to riches in the big city. Though generously sprinkled with farcical elements, this is still highly melodramatic – complete with unlikely coincidences, logic-defying story turns, and a ridiculously tucked-on sugary ending.

Chaplin’s first serious drama. Not bad, but not in my book of neither marriage nor luxury.
