The Circus (1928) is Chaplin’s most poetic and least ebulliently humorous film – and yet he manages once again to string together his comic pearls.

It was his last silent movie, with all the usual ingredients: the little tramp with a heart of gold who always ends up, willy-nilly, at the wrong place at the wrong time… but in the end goes off with both the lead actress and happiness by his side!
