    City Lights (1931)
    The Circus (1928)

    Limelight (1952)
    Monsieur Verdoux (1947)
    Sunnyside (1919)

    I've seen lots more of the shorts, but not 100% certain which ones. Hell, if I were a betting man, I'd bet I'd seen all of them (at least that have made it onto the dvd collections), but it's been too long. The ones I listed above are the ones I'm certain of. I also own some I won't rewatch that came with ones I will rewatch.

    Just by watching Verdoux, it seems that he could have been a great actor after the silent era, too. Only if he had been in other people's films...

    Feature films seen:

    Limelight
    Monsieur Verdoux
    Modern Times
    City Lights
    The Gold Rush
    The Kid (1921)

    Favorite film: Modern Times
