City Lights (1931)

on February 06, 1931 by BOXOFFICE Staff
A silent comedy but it's a wow. Chaplin has produced his finest comedy by cleverly blending pathos and comedy. The picture, of course, belongs to Chaplin, but he is given excellent support by the entire cast, especially Virginia Cherrill and Harry Myers.
   It's the old familiar Charlie -- with the big shoes and the tramp outfit that have made him famous. It has a good story -- that of Chaplin's efforts to help a poor girl out of her difficulties by getting money from rich Harry Myers.
   "City Lights" should be a money-maker. It has everything except dialogue and that's incidental. -- S.F.D. United Artists 86 mins.
