Monsieur Verdoux (1947) 16mm/Sound/124 min.
A suave but cynical man supports his family by marrying and murdering rich women for their money, but the job has some occupational hazards.

Chaplin was subjected to unusually hostile treatment by the press while promoting the opening of the film, and some boycotts took place during its short run. At one press conference to promote the film, Chaplin made his speech, then invited questions from the press with the words "Proceed with the butchering". Since then, it has gained enough of a following to be considered a cult film.

Despite its poor critical and commercial performance, the film was nominated for the 1947 Academy Award for Best Writing (Original Screenplay).

Director: Charles Chaplin
