Each of these two-disc sets has been remastered in the better-looking CAV format from film elements in Chaplin’s archives. Too sweetly dreamlike to survive either the ’50s tsunami of social-realist films or Red-baiting attacks against the auteur, Limelight languished in the vaults for 20 years. In the movie, Chaplin’s Indian Summer vaudevillian natters eloquently about art as he befriends 21-year-old Bloom, who lives up to her name and matches him for balletic poise.
