Possibly the Little Tramp's greatest tale: having fallen in love with a beautiful young blind woman (Virginia Cherrill) who, through a mix-up, has mistaken him for a millionaire, Charlie Chaplin resolves to raise the funds to pay for the operation that will restore her sight. The film's celebrated twist finale established this Depression-era classic as one of the screen's most bittersweet romances. Chaplin said, "I think I like CITY LIGHTS the best of all my films." DIR/SCR/PROD Charles Chaplin. U.S., 1931, b&w, 87 min. NOT RATED
