Reviews
Mine: A comedy masterpiece. Chaplin is a master at blending comic and serious ideas. Here he is at his best.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Charlie attacks the machine age in inimitable fashion, with sharp pokes at other social ills and the struggle of modern-day survival. Goddard is the gamin who becomes his partner in life. Chaplin's last silent film (with his own music--including ``Smile''--sound effects and gibberish song) is consistently hilarious, and unforgettable. Final shot is among Chaplin's most famous and most poignant. One of Goddard's sisters early on is young Gloria DeHaven (daughter of Chaplin's assistant director).
