Chaplin Sundays: Modern Times (1936)

The Tramp struggles to live in modern industrial society with the help of a young homeless woman.

This comedic masterpiece finds the iconic Little Tramp (Charlie Chaplin) employed at a state-of-the-art factory where the inescapable machinery completely overwhelms him, and where various mishaps keep getting him sent to prison. In between his various jail stints, he meets and befriends an orphan girl (Paulette Goddard). Both together and apart, they try to contend with the difficulties of modern life, with the Tramp working as a waiter and eventually a performer.


"In Modern Times Chaplin proves again what the whole world already acknowledges - that he is the greatest artist of the silent screen as apart from the half-theatrical talking screen, the most eloquent master of mime, and the simplest, most essential, and most touching of comedians." - Derek Malcom, The Gaurdian (1936)

"An ambitious, accomplished and frequently uproarious comedy." - David Parkinson, Empire Magazine (2000)
