Restoration of City Lights Score
The Intimate Score of the Tramp-Composer: Restoring Music for City Lights
“The day I completed my current picture City Lights was one of extreme relief. After fretting and stewing for almost two years, to see the end in sight was like the finish of a marathon. Usually after each picture I go to bed for a day or two to replenish my nerves, but this time there was another task ahead - the composing of music and synchronizing it to the picture”.
-Charlie Chaplin, Woman’s Home Companion, 1932
