Synopsis

Calvero, once a famous Music Hall star, now a washed-up old man, saves a neighbor from suicide. He nurtures the young ballerina with paralyzed legs back to health, and helps her regain her self-esteem, so that she may return to the stage.

MUBI's take

Made during the height of McCarthyism and the Red Scare in the U.S., Limelight was Chaplin’s reaction to his own decreasing popularity. A return to the memories of his youth spent in London music halls, it depicts with sweet and nostalgic details the life of an entertainer, as well as fame’s blows.
