City Lights Review


Widely considered Chaplin's best film (or at least close to the best), this simple and sweet story has the beloved tramp going to outrageous lengths to raise money for a blind girl's "miracle cure." But he's just a tramp -- will she still love him when she can see him for what he truly is? There's the rub, and Chaplin reminds us of it despite the endless, goofy scenarios the tramp encounters en route to the touching finale.
