Directed by Charles Chaplin | 1931

With Charles Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Harry Myers, Hank Mann

“If only one of Charles Chaplin's films could be preserved, City Lights would come the closest to representing all the different notes of his genius.”
—Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

Chaplin willfully ignored the advent of talkies and chugged right along with this silent masterpiece, in which The Little Tramp pals around with a drunken, suicide-obsessed millionaire (who recognizes him not when sober); finds himself perilously, hilariously outclassed in a boxing match; and romances a blind flower girl (Cherrill). Orson Welles’ favorite film ends with a sublime final scene that has (rightfully) become film history legend.
