Has anyone else noted that Chaplin's reputation as a great and influential movie director has been slipping in recent years? In the 70s, when A Woman of Paris was seen at some film festivals, it was a huge event, instantly catapulted into the Top 10 movie events of the year (although 50 years old, almost no one had seen it, so it was like a new film). Now, Chaplin movies rarely get into the Top 100 lists, and if they do, they are behind Keaton films like The General. I love The General, and it certainly deserves its reputation, but Chaplin deserves more attention than he is getting. His silent films made during the sound era were all singular events. What happened since that time? This is just an observation, nothing more. Feel free to enlighten me.
