Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 07/18/2003
"...[A] delight with its abundance of famously hilarious set pieces..."
A.V. Club - 12/22/2010
"[Chaplin added] a layer of tart political commentary to sequence after sequence of inspired physical comedy." -- Grade: A

Product Description:

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.

Production 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.
