The story of City Lights is simple.The Little Tramp meets a beautiful blind girl selling flowers on the sidewalk who mistakes him for a wealthy duke.When he learns that an operation may restore her sight, he sets off to earn the money she needs to have the operation.In a series of comedy adventures that only Chaplin could pull off, he eventually succeeds, even though his efforts land him in jail.While he is there, the girl has the operation and afterwards yearns to meet her benefactor.The closing scene in which she discovers that he is not a wealthy duke but only The Little Tramp was described by critic James Agee as "the highest moment in movies" and brought audiences to tears.
