City Lights

The Little Tramp (Charlie Chaplin) gets the money for the blind girl's (Virginia Cherrill's) eye operation from the drunken millionaire (Harry Myers). But the millionaire doesn't remember it after sobering up, and The Tramp is sent to prison for stealing the money from him. Years later, The Tramp gets out of prison and finds the formerly-blind girl operating her own flowershop. She doesn't recognize him (of course not, she never saw him) and goes to give him a coin. When she touches his hand, she recognizes him and realizes that he was her benefactor all along.
