City Lights stars Charles Chaplin and Virginia Cherrill in this 1931, Chaplin film. The Tramp(Chaplin) instantly falls for a poor blind girl(Cherrill) and tries everything in his power to make her life better. The blind girl unknowingly thinks that the Tramp is in fact a rich man, and she finally feels things are going to work out for her, but the Tramp is nothing but poor himself. In this very sweet and simple Chaplin silent film, I found myself crying and smiling throughout the entire film. Chaplin is such a genius and this in my opinion, is one of his best! Virginia is so lovely to look at, but the whole film belongs to Chaplin. An excellent and funny silent film, that I adored watching!
