Film Notes

An unusual Chaplin film, (…) the theme is precisely the same as that of Maurice Chevalier’s famous song “Valentine” – a young man who is in love with “the world’s most beautiful woman”, but who is abandoned by her. Later he meets up with her; but now she has a husband and a child. Seeing how gross her figure has become and how her beauty has faded, he thanks his lucky stars he has escaped so cruel a fate.

Uno Asplund, Chaplin’s Films (A.S. Barnes, 1976)
