Charlie Chaplin‘s ingenious character The Tramp is at his most affable in silent tragicomedy City Lights. When the tramp falls in love with a beautiful blind girl whose family is in financial trouble, he uses his on-and-off friendship with a wealthy man to be the girl’s benefactor and suitor in the hopes of helping her.
