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.
Since Charles Chaplin owned his own studio, he was able to control every aspect of the production. He could take his time and go at his own pace, spending as much time and money as he saw fit to get things done to his satisfaction. He demanded excellence from everyone working with him, but most of all he demanded it of himself.
A Blind Girl:
Thank you for your kindness, sir.
(at around 50 mins) When the man swallows part of the Tramp's soap and starts spraying bubbles, the tube used to spray the bubbles is clearly visible behind him.
In 1989, Roy Export Company Establishment copyrighted a version with new opening credits, and with Chaplin's score musically directed by and conducted by Carl Davis.
