Key art for A King In New York

Charles Chaplin is one of history's greatest cinema actors, writers and directors. For over fifty years Charlie Chaplin charmed audiences and critics with his timeless wit and candid take on the state of humanity in masterpieces such as The Great Dictator, Modern Times, The Gold Rush and more. Chaplin and his contribution to cinema have passed the test of time, he remains an adored icon even in the 21st century. Transmission Films and Paramount Home Entertainment are proud to present the definitive, fully-restored Chaplin collection.

A wonderful parody of 1950's American society, A King in New York, follows King Igor Shahdov's adventures in the Big Apple after a revolution in his country forces him from the throne. Shahdov becomes an accidental television celebrity, experiments with plastic surgery and is wrongly accused of being a Communist.

Produced in Europe after Chaplin's exile from the U.S.A. in 1952, A King In New York also stars Sid James.
