Monsieur Verdoux is a 1947 dark comedy film brought to you by Orson Welles and Charlie Chapman. The story centers around an honest man who resorts to desperate measures in an effort to provide for his family. Henri Verdoux (Charlie Chapman) is a loyal man and a diligent employee at a reputable bank. He is thrown through a loop when he is laid off one morning, without any explanation or reason. Henri does not have much prospect of a lucrative income, and that is when he decides to start swindling married women out of their fortunes a la Bluebeard style. As he leaves behind a trail of murdered wives, some local women begin to grow suspicious of his actions. Henri is shocked, once again, when two promising "clients" work together in revealing his nature to the public. Monsieur Verdoux received a lot of criticism upon its release in 1947; however, it was still nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing. Be sure to catch Chapman in what is presumably his darkest role!moreless
