The most cherished film by Charlie Chaplin is also his ultimate Little Tramp chronicle. The writer-director-star achieved new levels of grace, in both physical comedy and dramatic poignancy, with this silent tale of a lovable vagrant falling for a young blind woman who sells flowers on the street and mistakes him for a millionaire. Though this Depression-era smash was made after the advent of sound, Chaplin remained steadfast in his love for the expressive beauty of the pre-talkie form
Lichter der Großstadt( Visual )

24 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lichter der Grossstadt" beginnt mit einer brüllend komischen Persiflage pompöser Förmlichkeiten und endet in einer der berühmtesten Schlusseinstellungen der Filmgeschichte. Er geht uns von Anfang bis zum Schluss derart ans Herz und erschüttert unser Zwerchfell, dass er 1998 vom American Institute in die Liste der 100 Besten amerikanischen Filme aufgenommen wurde. Der Tonfilm hatte sich bereits durchgesetzt, als sich Charles Chaplin hartnäckig gegen die neue Art des Filmemachens stemmte und diesen unsterblichen Klassiker ohne Dialog drehte - auf der Tonspur sind nur Musik und Geräusche zu hören. Die Geschichte zeigt die Versuche des Tramps, Geld für eine Operation zu verdienen, durch die ein blindes Blumenmädchen das Augenlicht wieder erlangen soll. Dadurch schafft sich der Star einen idealen Rahmen für Gags und grosse Gefühle. Der Tramp jobbt abwechselnd als Strassenkehrer und Boxer, er gibt sich als reicher Mann aus und bewahrt einen Millionär vor dem Selbstmord. Die Botschaft des Films wird zwar nicht ausgesprochen, aber dennoch in aller Welt verstanden: Liebe macht blind. (Quelle: Umschlag)

Un povero vagabondo dall'animo sensibile e pieno di generose aspirazioni incontra un giorno una povera ragazza cieca, che vende fiori, e se ne innamora. Essa lo crede un ricco signore. Il vagabondo non può dimenticare la gentile immagine: errando una notte per la città, giunge alla sponda del fiume, dove un ricco signore disperato è sul punto di togliersi la vita. Il vagabondo lo distoglie dall'insano proposito e lo rincuora: i due diventano ottimi amici. Ma il milionario è tanto preso dai suoi affari e dai suoi piaceri che non ha tempo di pensare all'amico e un bel giorno parte per l'Europa. L'affetto, che lega il vagabondo alla cieca, si fa invece sempre piu' intenso. Un giorno la ragazza s'ammala e il vagabondo si piega a tutti i mestieri per poterle procurare il necessario. Finalmente ritorna il milionario che offre ospitalità al vagabondo e provvede alla cieca i mezzi necessari perché si faccia operare. Alcuni parenti del milionario accusano di furto il vagabondo, che, benché innocente, deve passare dei mesi in carcere. Nel frattempo la ragazza, che ha riacquistato la vista, ha aperto un bel negozio di fiori. Un giorno il vagabondo, uscito di carcere, si ferma dinanzi alla vetrina della fioraia. Questa gli va incontro e a un tratto riconosce in lui l'ignoto benefattore

"Byens lys" forteller historien om dagdriveren og den blinde blomsterpiken, som forelsker seg i hverandre. Hun vet imidlertid ikke at han er en lassis, men tror han er millionær.
