City Lights

CITY LIGHTS

Review: A homeless tramp falls in love with a lovely blind flower seller and secretly labors to pay for the restoration of her sight.
Director: Charles Chaplin
Actors: Charles Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Harry Myers, Al Ernest Garcia and Hank Mann
Year: 1931
Genre: Classics, Comedy, Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 4/5
At the time of the release of this film economic Depression was biting, and movies more than ever before became a source of feelgood balm. Chaplin went against the incoming tide of talking pictures by using only music, sound effects, subtitles and his own pantomime skills. Out of all the films that Charles Chaplin did this was his personal favorite. This is Charles Chaplin’s first time where he composed the film score to one of his very own films.
