In The Home Monsieur Verdoux

Key art for Monsieur Verdoux

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.

In Monsieur Verdoux, a suave but cynical man turns to crime to support his family after he is laid-off from his job as a banker. He begins marrying rich women then murdering them for their money but is caught out as two ladies prove to be serious occupational hazards.

Written by Chaplin from an idea by Orson Welles, the 1947 comedy Monsieur Verdoux was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and is one of the first films to feature Chaplin out of his Tramp persona.
