Charles Chaplin tapped into his life experience for this bittersweet tale, playing an aging, once-great vaudevillian who finds renewed purpose when he offers shelter to a suicidal young dancer (Claire Bloom). The two discards gradually give one another the impetus to return to the stage in this moving opus; Nigel Bruce, Norman Lloyd, and (in a memorable shared set-piece with Chaplin) Buster Keaton also star. 137 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; documentary; featurettes; archival audio; deleted scene; bonus shorts "A Night in the Show" (1915), "The Professor" (1919); theatrical trailers. Two-disc set.
