This is a Charlie Chaplin film on paper in a way It is easy to follow it moves through the strange world of the early 1930s and it approaches the evil through the perspective of a young woman whose only wish is to become a star despite her dialect and generally uneducated background How do you go about it?Sexuality is the sword you fight with and also the knife that hurts you Doris sums it up as follows The principles Men are entitled to it and women are not Now I am asking myself how men are supposed to carry out their entitlement without the women? IdiotOf course the men have a solution to that small issue They never marry the women they sleep with as they lose all respect for them and want somethi
