    For me, Limelight is the best film in Charlie Chaplin s talking pictures The book contains the film s pre production and shooting process, the effects of the film after the screening, and the sources of inspiration from Chaplin s own life In the book, you can also find the text of Limelight that looks like a long story rather than a screenplay The most exciting part of the film is that it brings together two legends Chaplin and Buster Keaton The book describes how two legends come together.
