A WOMAN OF PARIS
1923, Janus Films, 78 min, USA, Dir: Charlie Chaplin

One of the rare Chaplin films not starring Chaplin, this romantic drama stars Edna Purviance as a woman who bounces back and forth between the security of a wealthy lover (played by the great Adolphe Menjou) and the passion of a poor artist.


CITY LIGHTS
1931, Janus Films, 83 min, USA, Dir: Charlie Chaplin

Perhaps Charlie Chaplin's best blend of comedy, pathos and class critique, this portrayal of the Tramp's well-intended efforts to help a lovely, blind flower seller is one of the great classics of the director's oeuvre.
