Valentino was at his best in "Conquering Power." He looked so modern..a today man, It is easy to see why so many thousands attended his funeral. He captivated.

In this silent film, when a young woman thinks her fiance has jilted her, she runs off to Paris and a life of sin.

DirCharles Chaplin CastEdna Purviance , Adolphe Menjou , Carl Miller .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Chaplin. Edna Purviance, Adolphe Menjou, Carl Miller, Lydia Knott, Charles French. "French girl Purviance is set to marry her sweetheart (Miller), but a misunderstanding causes her to move to Paris, where she becomes the mistress of wealthy Menjou. Chaplin's one attempt to make a serious film (without himself as star) was quite sophisticated for its time, and remains interesting, even moving, today. It was a box-office flop in 1923; Chaplin reedited it, but waited until 1977 to reissue it, with his newly composed music score. Chaplin does a cameo as a railway porter, but he's virtually unrecognizable."
