LIMELIGHT (1952) 4 stars

The best of Chaplin's sound films. It's clear that Chaplin is playing someone not too dissimilar to himself. Also, it’s always a treat to see a young artist rising to fame, especially when they have such a strong mentor. Claire Bloom does a wonderful job playing the young artist falling in love with the elderly teacher. Obviously, it can only end in one way. Bittersweet.
