In The Home Limelight

Key art for Limelight

Charles Chaplin is one of history's greatest cinema actors, writers and directors. For over fifty years Charlie Chaplin charmed audiences and critics with his timeless wit and candid take on the state of humanity in masterpieces such as The Great Dictator, Modern Times, The Gold Rush and more. Chaplin and his contribution to cinema have passed the test of time, he remains an adored icon even in the 21st century. Transmission Films and Paramount Home Entertainment are proud to present the definitive, fully-restored Chaplin collection.

Set in 1914 on the eve of World War 1, Limelight centres around once-famous but now fading music hall comedian, Calvero, and despondent ballet dancer, Terry. After Calvero rescues Terry from a suicide attempt, he helps her rebuild her confidence as a dancer. In turn, Terry helps Calvero to reignite his music hall career.

The Academy Award-winning Limelight also features Buster Keaton in a classic duet and a young Claire Bloom.
