City Lights

(1931) dir Chaplin w/Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Florence Lee [87 min; 35mm]
CITY LIGHTS, the most cherished film by Charlie Chaplin, is also his ultimate Little Tramp chronicle. The writer-director-star achieved new levels of grace, in both physical comedy and dramatic poignancy, with this silent tale of a lovable vagrant falling for a young blind woman who sells flowers on the street (Cherrill) and mistakes him for a millionaire. – Criterion Collection
