A Woman of Paris

1923 NR

Charlie Chaplin directs this silent melodrama about a small-town girl, Marie St. Clair (Edna Purviance), who sets out to find romantic affirmation in the City of Lights. Believing she's been jilted by her artist beau (Carl Miller), Marie heads to Paris and becomes the mistress of a wealthy playboy (Adolphe Menjou). When she runs into her ex-lover years later and he again proclaims his love to her, she must choose between two different lives.
