City Lights (1931)

100EPISODE # 03:  Charlie Chaplin, playing his iconic Tramp character, falls in love with a blind flower girl…and hilarity ensues? What happens when one person writes, stars, edits, and directs a movie? And is the ending of this film possibly the GREATEST ending ever? (ALERT: We don’t spoil the ending.)

If you’ve never seen a silent film, or thought you hated the genre, CITY LIGHTS is the movie to watch. After you see this and your heart fills with hope, you might be inspired to say, just as The Tramp did (via title card), “Tomorrow the birds will sing.”
