EP. 47 — City Lights

Paul & Amy tumble through 1931’s Charlie Chaplin comedy City Lights! They ask whether the film presaged the structure of modern comedies, compare Chaplin’s style to Buster Keaton, and ask where the line is between genius and megalomaniac. Plus: Chaplin expert Dan Kamin talks about working with Robert Downey Jr. and the early life of Chaplin.
