Chaplin's final American film tells the story of a fading music hall comedian's effort to help a despondent ballet dancer learn both to walk and feel confident about life again. The highlight of the film is the classic duet with Chaplin's only real artistic film comedy rival, Buster Keaton.Written by

Above Calvero's bed there is an old poster that says "Calvero - Tramp Comedian", which is a nod to Charles Chaplin's most beloved character from the silent era, The Little Tramp. See more »
The letter Calvero receives from Redfern states that his performance at Middlesex is on Monday 5 September. In 1914, when the scene is supposed to take place, 5 September was a Saturday. See more »

I thought you hated the theater.

Charles Chaplin is, at least for me, the best film maker of all time. And Limelight is his best film. It is one of the 10 films I have given 100/100.
The film is about this old comedian who can't find himself a job. He saves a young girl who tried to commit suicide. Well, they become friends and stuff.
Simply the film is perfect. There is nothing bad I could say about it. Well, maybe the ballet scene was too long (but maybe I just can't concentrate enough). The script, the music, the actors, the whole philosophical structure of the film! They are all perfect. And the end of the film is something so beautiful that you really have to see it.
If there is one thing you have to see, make sure it'll be Chaplin's Limelight!
