Modern Times (Charlie Chaplin) (1936)
Starring: Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard
Director: Charlie Chaplin
Category: Comedy, Classic
Studio: Image Ent.
87 mins



In Modern Times"The Little Tramp" battles it out with technology, unemployment, jail burglars, demanding customers, bosses and the Gamin.He wins some and loses more but, at the end, walks undaunted into the sunrise.

Although it is known as Charlie Chaplin's last silent film, Modern Times is remarkably unsilent.From the opening notes of the rich orchestral score to the first and last time the voice of "The Little Tramp" is heard near the end of the film, the effect is of a film that speaks with a clear, well-rounded voice.
