Overview
The Tramp struggles to live in modern industrial society with the help of a young homeless woman.
Synopsis
Charlie Chaplin bid farewell to silent comedy with this funny and poignant masterpiece. Here Chaplin stars as a factory worker fed-up with the job and his tyrannical boss (who keeps an eye on all his employees via a big-brother TV monitor). When he meets and falls in love with an orphaned street waif, the two dream of a nice suburban existence...but the cops are never far behind, chasing the vagabond couple.
Notes
MODERN TIMES was an original selection to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1989.

Costar Henry Bergman also served as assistant director of this film.

This was Chaplin's final "silent film" (although he does sing a song consisting of some "nonsense syllables"); it was made when virtually all others had abandoned the form for sound. Because Chaplin had total financial control of his films, as well as a totally devoted audience, he could do exactly as he liked -- even if it wasn't in fashion.

"[Chaplin added] a layer of tart political commentary to sequence after sequence of inspired physical comedy." -- Grade: A
Scott Tobias (22 Dec 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"...[A] delight with its abundance of famously hilarious set pieces..."
