Charlie Chaplin Directs

Written by Joe D on November 24th, 2010

Here is some behind the scenes footage of Chaplin directing a scene in City Lights. I love seeing him working on a location somewhere in Los Angeles back in 1930. Those were the days. Actually now that I look at it closer I think it’s probably shot on Charlie’s lot, his own personal movie studio at La Brea and Sunset Blvd. The building in the background looks like a painted flat.
