Straying the city streets, our Little Tramp happens upon a blind flower girl. Being blind, she can’t see his real self, and mistakes him for a rich man. How convenient, since the Tramp falls in love with the girl. Later on, he saves a drunken millionaire from drowning. The millionaire becomes his best friend, and the Tramp is one step closer to being who the flower girl thinks he is. How inconvenient, that the millionaire no longer recognizes the tramp when he’s sober… Friendship and social ranking are not always as they seem. In this world of a disenchanted bourgeoisie, a tramp can be king and a blind girl his queen. “City Lights” is one of Chaplin’s greatest accomplishments, with a final scene that has been called the greatest single piece of acting ever committed to celluloid.
