Chaplin (1992) Poster


Penelope Ann Miller: Edna Purviance



  • Charlie Chaplin : [noticing a pretty girl at the opposite side of a restaurant aisle]  Excuse me Miss, do you always eat alone?

    Edna Purviance : Only when I'm trying to make a new acquaintance. Actually I'm waiting for my girlfriend.

    Charlie Chaplin : Actually I'm a motion picture director, and I'm forming a new company with Bronco Billy over there.

    Edna Purviance : And you're looking for a new leading lady. Lucky me.

    Charlie Chaplin : Obviously you are an actress, Miss...

    Edna Purviance : Purviance. Sorry, just a secretary.

    Charlie Chaplin : Don't be sorry. I'm auditioning for actresses who aren't actresses.

    Edna Purviance : Well, if you're on the lookout for untalented actresses who aren't actresses, then you couldn't do better than me.


    Edna Purviance : Worse than me.

    Charlie Chaplin : [getting up after being called over by Sydney]  Don't you want to know who I am?

    Edna Purviance : I've no interest whatsoever in who you are

    [pauses, Chaplin starts moving away] 

    Edna Purviance : Mr. Chaplin.
