Summary
In this dark comedy first released during WWII, Henri Vedoux, played by Charlie Chaplin, supports his family by first marrying, and then killing wealthy widows. On another level the film is an indictment of war in which mass murder is legalized, celebrated and paraded. "Killing is the enterprise by which your system prospers, " Verdoux says. "As a mass killer, I am an amateur by comparison."
