A film of madness and machines from the comedy legend!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Modern Times [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Charlie won great reviews after he presented Modern Times to the world. Made in 1936, this film about the tramp finding employment in a machine factory, is a masterpiece! As with many of his later films, Charlie made Modern Times to make a point, in this case about young men working with machines that did just one job and how this constant repitition could damage the workers health. This film is one of Chaplin's greatest and one that is watchable again and again! The laughter roles along with every scene! A MUST buy!
