Abstract

Chaplin and his distribution company, United Artists, faced widespread public hostility toward his last American releases, "Monsieur Verdoux" and "Limelight". The combined distribution campaigns engineered for the films exemplify the interrelation of film economics, contemporary politics, and even critical reputation.
