"Limelight" is an emotional film in which Chaplin "succumbed" to the sound film era. The psychological description of the characters is quite delicate, but the spirit of the work is obviously inferior to that of the silent films of the 1920s. Chaplin knew that he did not belong to the sound era after all, so in this film, he paid tribute to the invincible silent film era: first, he brought in the 57-year-old silent film comedy star The Great Stone Face for the first time, and made a cameo appearance in the film. The actor's acting partner, in this era of the general trend, they no longer have to worry about the embarrassment of Shengyu He Shengliang; the second is to invite the actress Edna Purviance, who has worked with him many times in his early years, in the show. The film played a role; the third is to add a line for Caviro in the film; "I am that tramp", which is actually a tribute to his past.
The theme song of "Limelight" was composed by Chaplin himself, but it was not confirmed by the Academy Award for Best Film Song until 1973, because the film was not released in the Los Angeles area of ​​the United States until 1972, so according to the Oscar's film review scope , "Limelight" became the longest-running film in Oscar-winning history.   ()

    Reminds me of Chaplin's Bole Mac Senert and his Slapstick Comedy. "The film industry soon invented the same period of sound and picture. Silent movies are forever a thing of the past. Now they are under the impact of TV. The era when Hollywood was a DreamWorks is gradually gone..."

    The heights are so cold. Chaplin's last autobiographical film. In fact, throughout the film history of the master, you will find a wonderful and very tenacious thing injected into his performance, that is, he has never been static and never changed... A sense of life surging in blood, he has been passing on With such a vivid emotion. He has never remained the same, he has cried out for the state of the times, he has cried out for human freedom, he has cried out for poverty and hunger, he has cried out for the absurdity of the world, he has cried out for loneliness... He has never changed, no matter when or where No matter what kind of adversity, the man in the top hat always shines with humanity, no matter how weak or small. The love line of the plot corresponds somewhat to "The Circus". A man's love for a woman is actually very simple. He just wants her to be well, and does everything he can to give and give to her. In "Circus", he wears a dance dress. The girl in the top hat pushes the man who suits her... It's so sad and selfless, the man in the top hat is alone with all this... The man in the top hat pushes the girl in the dance dress to another man again, but not this time , she knew what love looked like.

Limelight quotes

  • Calvero: What do you want meaning for? Life is a desire, not a meaning. Desire is the theme of all life! It makes a rose want to be a rose and want to grow like that. And a rock want to contain itself and remain like that.

  • Calvero: I'm through clowning. Life isn't a gag anymore. I can't see the joke. From now on, I'm a retired humorist.
