Charlie Chaplin United States, 1931

Endless Eye's rating of the film City Lights

Rewatching Chaplin film by film. I still laugh harder at his films than any modern comedy. I.E. the scene where he's drunkenly eating pasta but accidentally begins to eat the identical looking confetti which has fallen on his plate. The entire dining sequence is hilarious. As is the boxing match. Chaplin is not just a master of physical comedy, but somehow, he became and remains an archetype for all things human.
