A Woman of Paris

[reissue titles]

     TO THE PUBLIC:
In order to avoid any mis-
 understanding, I wish to
announce that I do not
appear in this picture. It is
the first serious drama
written and directed by 
myself.
    CHARLES CHAPLIN

1
A small village, somewhere
       in France.

2
Marie St. Clair, a woman
  of fate - victim of an
  unhappy home.

3
"I'm locked in."

4
"I must see you tonight, 
 Marie, about our plans 
     for tomorrow."

5
Planning for the future,
      they return.

6
"We'll get to Paris by 
 noon, and in the 
 evening, we shall be 
      married."

7
"He's locked the window."

8
"Your daughter has been 
      locked out."

9
"Perhaps he will provide 
 you a bed for the night."

10
"Don't trouble."

11
"Come to my house.
Mother will put you up 
   for the night."

12
"I'll get mother to 
 prepare your bed."

13
"Please don't wake her."

14
"Oh, I don't know what 
        to do."

15
"Don't worry, dearest,
 tomorrow we'll forget
   all these tears."

16
"I wish to see you,
       alone."

17
"Get that woman out 
  of this house!"

18
"What do you mean?
I'll call mother, she'll
      understand."

19
"She's been locked out, 
      that's all."

20
"I'd better go."

21
"There's a train leaving for 
Paris at twelve-fifteen. We
      can catch that."

22
"You get the tickets.
I'm going home to pack
       my bag."

23
"Don't be long."

24
"Father, they're determined 
 to marry. Why not make 
    the best of it?"

25
"I never want to see 
     him again."

26
"Has he got any 
     money?"

27
"Please say 'goodbye'
to him before he goes."

28
"Jean, say 'goodbye' 
  to your father."

29
"Quick, the doctor!"

30
"Jean, haven't you 
     left yet?"

31
"Is that you, Marie?
 Something terrible
 has happened. We
 must postpone our 
       trip."

32
"Just a moment."

33
A year later in the magic 
  city of Paris, where
fortune is fickle and a
woman gambles with life -

34
     PIERRE REVEL
A gentleman of leisure,
   whose whims have
made and ruined many a
   woman's career.

35
    MARIE ST. CLAIR
From the drabness of the 
 village to the gayety 
    of Paris --

36
"The richest bachelor 
      in Paris."

37
"Who is that?"

38
"One of the richest old
    maids in Paris."

39
"Who's the man 
   with her?"

40
Pierre Revel makes a
  study of eating as he 
makes an art of living --

41
"Those perfumed 
handkerchiefs stink 
 my kitchen out."

42
CHAMPAGNE TRUFFLES.

	Note:- Truffles rooted
	up from the soil by hogs
	- A delicacy for pigs and
	gentlemen.

43
Early the next morning -
   MARIE ST. CLAIR'S 
      APARTMENT.

44
FIFI, a friend - Young and
  vivacious - living as 
    youth will live.

45
"Why, Marie, of all the 
    lazy people --"

46
"Come get up. Wasting 
 your life in bed --"

47
"What are you doing 
   up so early?"

48
"I haven't been to 
     bed yet."

49
The business office of 
   Pierre Revel.

50
"Won't this complicate 
       matters?"

51
"The other lady."

52
"Call her up."

53
"Who?"

54
"The other lady."

55
"Hello dear, shall I see
 you tonight for dinner?"

56
"Why, of course."

57
"She doesn't know yet."

58
Paulette, another
    friend.

59
"Has Marie seen this?"

60
"Well, such is life."

61
"Don't worry, Marie dear.
 Everything will come
    out all right."

62
"It's no use, Pierre, I
 can't go out tonight."

63
"I'm too depressed."

64
"You're not worried 
 about that, are you?"

65
"It makes no difference 
 to us. We can go on 
   just the same."

66
"How can you talk
    like that?"

67
"I'll see you tomorrow 
 when you are in a 
 better mood. Goodnight."

68
That evening in the 
  Latin Quarter.

69
"Hello, Marie, I'm in the
 studio of a friend of
 mine. Why don't you
    come along?"

70
"What's going on?"

71
"Oh, just a quiet little 
 party with a few friends."

72
"You can easily find it.
 It's the studio on the
 right or left, I don't
      know which."

73
"Well."

74
"Well."

75
"Well."

76
Time makes strangers 
  of intimate friends and
formality covers their real 
        emotions.

77
"My, but you look
    beautiful."

78
"I see you've become
  quite an artist."

79
"Then it's understood,
 you're to paint my 
     portrait?"

80
"Here's my address. If you
 will call tomorrow we can
 arrange details for the
        portrait."

81
The following morning.

82
"This is the gown I'd like 
    to be painted in."

83
"Why, Jean, who are you 
    in mourning for?"

84
"My father."

85
"When did he die?"

86
"The night you left."

87
"Ask the gentleman in 
 the next room if he 
 would care for some."

88
"Why should I explain? You 
   wouldn't understand."

89
"You jump at conclusions.
 I understand perfectly."

90
"You're too clever."

91
"Only, be careful."

92
"Then we'll choose the 
    silver dress?"

93
And the passing days
 brought about the
final touches to Marie's
      portrait.

94
"Aren't you tired?"

95
"Now you promised not 
 to look at the picture 
 until I finished it."

96
"Why bring up the past?"

97
"Because I knew you 
    better then."

98
"I love you, Marie, in
 spite of everything --
      I love you."

99
"We can marry and
 begin a new life."

100
In the mind of Marie 
 St. Clair is the problem 
 - marriage or luxury.

101
"It's no use, we can't
    live this way."

102
"It isn't such a bad way
 - you have everything."

103
"Not everything."

104
"Poor little woman."

105
"The trouble is you 
 don't know what you 
      do want!"

106
"I want a real home,
 babies, and a man's 
       respect."

107
"You never take me 
    seriously."

108
"Now then, what on 
  earth is wrong."

109
"I'm very unhappy. What
 do I get out of life?
       Nothing."

110
"Idiot!"

111
"Why all this temperament -
    what does it mean?"

112
"It means we must 
      part."

113
"Who is it, this young 
        artist?"

114
"It doesn't matter who
 it is, he loves me and
 is going to marry me."

115
"Do you love him?"

116
"Yes!"

117
"Liar."

118
"I love him."

119
"I'll see you tomorrow 
  night for dinner."

120
"You'll never see 
    me again."

121
"Very well, phone me 
      sometime."

122
An eternal problem --
  Mother and son.

123
"All right, I'm not going 
 to marry her - so don't
   keep harping on it."

124
"I wouldn't care, but
 it's the type of woman 
        she is."

125
"I told I'm not going 
    to marry her."

126
"I'm only thinking of 
     your future."

127
"Yes, you think of my
 future when it concerns 
        your own."

128
"Why upset yourself 
     this way?"

129
"You take too much 
 for granted, mother,
 of course I wouldn't 
      marry her."

130
"But you proposed 
     to her."

131
"Yes, in a moment 
  of weakness."

132
"Perhaps you're right.
 It was a moment of 
      weakness."

133
"Don't be comic."

134
That night Pierre Revel 
 consoles himself with 
    Marie's friend.

135
"That's Pierre with
      Paulette."

136
"And she calls herself 
 a friend of Marie's."

137
"To mademoiselle's 
 apartment. I'll 
    walk home."

138
And that night Marie 
 consoles herself.

139
"He's still outside, 
       Madam."

140
"Therese, call him up."

141
"Call her up."

142
"Did you call?"

143
"No, did you?"

144
"Let's stop this nonsense.
 When shall I see you 
        again?"

145
"You don't love me
      anymore."

146
"Tomorrow evening for 
        dinner?"

147
"All right! Goodnight,
         dear."

148
The following morning.

149
"My dear, I've got so 
  much to tell you."

150
"Who do you think was 
 with Pierre last night? 
  That cat Paulette."

151
"And she calls herself a 
 friend, the deceitful -"

152
Paulette.

153
"Don't breathe a word 
  about last night."

154
"He wants me to dine 
 with him again tonight,
 but I'm so worried 
     about Marie."

155
"What do you think she 
 said - she's dining with 
   him again tonight."

156
"What time do we dine 
   tonight, dear?"

157
"Seven-thirty."

158
"You're sure you have 
 no other engagement?"

159
"I must run along."

160
"Goodbye, dear."

161
And as the hours pass,
     remorse and despair
control the fate of Jean Millet.

162
"You look tired, dear,
 don't stay out late."

163
"I don't know which of 
 your moods amuses 
      me most."

164
"Dead."

165
"Your son has had a 
 serious accident and 
 you must be prepared 
   for the worst."

166
"What was your 
  son's age?"

167
"Was he a resident 
    of Paris?"

168
"Where's your mistress?"

169
"She left for your son's 
     studio, Madam."

170
Time heals, and experience
  teaches that the secret
of happiness is in service 
        to others.

171
"Mother, here comes 
       Father!"

172
"I see that you have 
 another addition to the 
        family."

173
"Young lady, when are
 you going to marry and
 have some of your own?"

174
"By the way, whatever
became of Marie St. Clair?"
