A Woman of Paris

Nainen Pariisissa. US 1923. PC: United Artists. D: Charles Chaplin. Starring Edna Purviance. 89'. Copia restaurata dalla Cineteca di Bologna presso L’Immagine Ritrovata nel 2005. ♪ original, partly previously unpublished music by Charles Chaplin newly arranged and conducted by Timothy Brock, performed by Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Saturday 9 July 2005, Teatro Comunale, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. The new music is a big improvement, lovingly arranged by Brock from Chaplin's unpublished material for Limelight etc. The print did not look good in this screening. Apparently Chaplin burned the negative, and it is perhaps impossible to produce a good print now.
