Chaplin Studio Fire 1927
This movie was almost doomed and part of the worst years for Chaplin. It took two years to complete with an eight month break for a contentious divorce from Lita Grey, false tax issues from Uncle Sam, scratched negatives, a fire and to top it off, the death of Chaplin's mother.
Chaplin almost gave up on the movie and would barely speak of it in later years, but it ranks in the top few spots of his best work.Studio Fire Pics
