My favorite Chaplin/Edna film is "The Fireman". A hilarious classic with Edna, Charlie and Eric Campbell at their zany best.
Thanks! Really nice to know what are Edna's fan favorite films.
I will choose "The Kid" because in this film Edna plays a Mother, something that never came to be in real life. Her character has real kindness and I have always wondered if Charlie wrote this in from observing Edna again in reality.... To be honest, though, I love all the films Charlie and Edna made together. Congratulations on such a fabulous website!!
'The Kid' is a special film for Edna. Glad the 1921 version was released in the 1990's so we could see more of Edna's scenes too.Edna was known as a very kind and generous person, as Chaplin would have learned being with her. I found this true even in her early days in Lovelock. She had a great teacher in her mother, Louise, who was always known as a generous and kind people who helped others.Glad you enjoyed the site and thanks for visiting... - L
The Immigrant (usually), just because of the obviously strong relationship that comes through between Charlie and Edna. And that last scene at the marriage bureau is very hert-warming and naturally played.
The Adventurer, because Edna seemed like a mature, galmorous, sophisticated woman, not just an innocent girl.
Thanks for your comment on The Adventurer! She did appear quite sophisticated in that one...
