I love the lion scene from The Circus (1928). I’m sure a lot of that fear was genuine!

“You can see now?”- City Lights (1931)
This ending to City Lights (1931) definitely makes one of my fop favorite film scenes of all time. Just the broad scope of emotions you feel right alongside with the Tramp through this entire scene is incredible. Anxiety, longing, hope, love… It’s simply one of the most beautiful moments in film history.
ㅤso let’s set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun :))
Glossy 10 x 8 photo of Chaplin as the ‘Tramp’ in The Circus, signed in-person in blue ink in his later years, “Hello! Charles Chaplin.” In fine condition, with light vertical streaking to finish.
The Circus was nominated for four Academy Awards, but the Academy took Chaplin out of the running by giving him a Special Award, for acting, writing, directing and producing.

Dinosaurs. I love classic animals too! hahahaha :)
A quote about Charlie Chaplin’s “little tramp” - so true.
He is the brother of Pierrot, with the body of Punchinello, the heart of Cherubino, a man of wit like the classic characters he is becoming a myth, entering a world of fairytales, an embellishment to childish pleasures and dreams, our age may pass, the cinema may die, but Chaplin will live on.
Harry Baur (1920)
