Product description

Man vs. machine! And the winner is every comedy fan when Charlie Chaplin's Tramp confronts assembly-line woes in this classic chosen in 1998 as one of the American Film Institute's Top-100 American Films. The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish a jailbird and more. In the end as Tramp and waif walk arm and arm into an insecure future we know they've found neitherbliss nor a paycheck but more importantly each other. The times and satire remain timeless in Modern Times.Running Time: 83 min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre:�COMEDY UPC:�085393765125

Additional Features

A "Chaplin Today" feature includes the penetrating observations of Belgian directors Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne. Whimsically, there's a karaoke version of Chaplin's nonsense song (the first time his voice is heard in his films), plus a clip of Liberace crooning the famous Chaplin composition "Smile." A curious 10-minute Cuban film from 1967 records the reactions of villagers seeing a movie for the first time (it's Modern Times), and along with photo and poster galleries, the extras are somewhat padded out with two vintage promotional films about the machine age. --Robert Horton
