MONSIEUR VERDOUX
1947, The Film Desk, 124 min, USA, Dir: Charles Chaplin
This black comedy from writer-director-star Charles Chaplin (based on a premise from Orson Welles) is inspired by the true-life story of bigamist wife-killer Henri Desire Landru, who married wealthy women for their money and then methodically bumped them off. Martha Raye is unforgettable as the woman Verdoux just can’t seem to kill. It was the first time that Chaplin worked with John Gabriel Beckman, who is noted for his extensive career as a set designer, art director, production designer and muralist as well as a World War I fighter pilot.

Program moderated by production designer Thomas A. Walsh. | Screening format: 35mm
Aero Theatre • Sun, May 18, 2014 • 5:30pm
