Haven't seen it but I love it
26 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to give this movie a 9, the only thing that spoiled it for me was that all the prints and negatives have been burnt, so I haven't actually seen it, but other than that, it's a great flick. According to the Turner Classic Movie website, "The story for this film is variously attributed to Chaplin and Sternberg, but Sternberg was definitely contracted to direct the film, intended as the screen comeback of Edna Purviance. Filmed as The Sea Gull, it was found lacking by Chaplin, who directed some additional scenes and inserted them into the version finally premiered as A Woman of the Sea at a Beverly Hills theater. It was screened only once, then withdrawn into Chaplin's vaults. Filmed largely on the coast near Monterey." Wow. Good enough for me. Maybe I should have given it a 10.
