NotesB/W., Silent The tramp falls in love with blind flower-girl who regains her sight. I can't remember what the operation is, if stated. It's clear the tramp's love is not conditional on the flower-girl being blind but on getting her to see. The flower-girl's love appears to be conditional on his being a millionaire. The film of course is much more than about blindness and is using the flower-girl's lack of seeing as a comment on society. Anyone interested will find a lot of material on the Web about Chaplin.
