City Lights (1931)

I am working my way through the TCM Essentials, Volume 1 and it came time to watch the Charlie Chaplin film, City Lights.  I had seen two Chaplin films before, Limelight which I enjoyed and would watch again and The Great Dictator which I liked more for what it stood for.  Both films are ‘talkies’.  So I had never watched a Chaplin silent film until this one.

And I still have a hard time watching silent movies.  I have enjoyed some but I find others sleep-inducing (this one included).  I can watch foreign films all day but give me a silent film to watch and it’s a real project.

Charlie’s Tramp falls for a blind woman selling flowers.  He befriends a drunken millionaire who helps him when he’s drunk and forgets him when he sobers up.  TCM said ‘what to look for’ was the boxing scene.  It’s pretty good but I thought it went on too long.  What I liked better were the scenes with the drunken millionaire.  There is a scene when they first meet and the millionaire is trying to commit suicide by jumping into the water with a boulder tied to him.  But instead of the boulder being attached to the millionaire it is tied to the Tramp and he gets pulled into the water.  I laughed.

Is Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp essential to people who love movies?  There are no Buster Keaton films in The Essentials, is the Tramp more essential than Buster Keaton?  I’m afraid I have to disagree with TCM on this one only because I didn’t love this film.  I even watched it twice to make sure.  And I watched the extras.  So you can’t say I didn’t try…

Under a hint of pre dawn cloud, and looking across Rushcutters Bay to the wider Sydney Harbour, you can see the Harbour Bridge on the lectins North Sydyto the right.

I’m so scared if the day you’ll tell me you don’t wanna talk to me no more, or even worse, the day you go without saying goodbye.

I hope no one treats you bad. You deserve that smile I love seeing on your face, I love hearing that genuine laughter. I know I’ll stop hearing it one day, I know I’m not that important to you anymore as I once was, but it’s okay I think. I knew a day would come when I’d be less important or that you’d prioritize others to me, but I didn’t think it would be that soon, I thought we would last a bit longer. I’m dying to ask you if I still matter to you and if you still love me and if you still want me to be a part in your life, but I don’t know if it matter anymore. But it’s fine. I love you.

As long as you’re happy, my world is fine.

I wish I was as important to you as you are to me, I wish I was your type, I wish everything was for once going my way, I wish you knew. Well you probably do, I mean how can’t you tell? I can’t be mad at you, and when I am I forget it in seconds, I can’t go a day without thinking about you, I can’t ignore what I feel anymore. It’s so silly of me to let this happen but I don’t think I can control it anymore.

You’d drop me at any chance, but then again I don’t know if I can blame you, I’d probably do that too.
