This is probably Charlie Chaplin's best work. It's certainly my favorite. It's about a bum who falls in love with a blind flower girl. It features one of the funniest slapstick sequences yet also features one of the most moving endings ever filmed. What's also similarly remarkable is the fact that it was made when sound films were already in full swing. Apart from a gag early in the film, it's still very much a completely silent film.
