With the aid of a wealthy erratic tippler, a dewy-eyed tramp who has fallen in love with a sightless flower girl accumulates money to be able to help her medically.
Psychologist Stephen Weissman has hypothesized that the film is highly autobiographical, with the blind girl representing Charles Chaplin's mother, while the drunken millionaire represents Chaplin's father. Weissman also compared many of the film's sets with locations from Chaplin's real childhood, such as the statue in the opening scene resembling St. Mark's Church on Kennington Park Road and Chaplin referring to the waterfront set as the Thames Embankment.

(at around 1h 13 mins) When the Tramp tries to place a gun in the desk top table, the Millionaire is lying back on the sofa. The next shot, he is sitting upright.
Available prints feature the original credits, although references to United Artists have been removed. Even though he was uncredited in the original versions, José Padilla's name was added to the credits
