City lights /  Janus Films ; mk2 diffusion ; written and directed by Charles Chaplin ; assistant directors, Harry Crocker, Henry Bergman, Albert Austin ; [produced by Charles Chaplin].
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 and mistakes him for a millionaire. Though this Depression-era smash was made after the advent of sound, Chaplin remained steadfast in his love for the expressive beauty of the pre-talkie form.
