City Lights (1931)

City Lights is a 1931 American romantic comedy film written, produced, and directed by Charlie Chaplin and starring Chaplin as the Tramp, a character he had been playing in films for over a decade. The film follows the Tramp as he falls in love with a blind flower girl (Virginia Cherrill) and tries to help her regain her sight.

City Lights is widely regarded as one of Chaplin's greatest films and is a classic of both silent film and comedy. It features some of Chaplin's most memorable gags and is notable for its emotional depth and its portrayal of the Tramp's relationship with the flower girl. The film's final scene, in which the flower girl finally regains her sight and recognizes the Tramp, is one of the most famous and moving in cinema history. If you're a fan of Chaplin's work or enjoy classic comedies, I highly recommend giving City Lights a watch. It's a timeless film that will make you laugh and move you to tears.
