Modern Times(Charles Chaplin) 1936 **** 11/28/2015

Could it be the greatest film ever?  The tramp(Charlie Chaplin) in a Marx & Engels depression world of industry is humorous and heartbreaking as he goes from the factory to a mental hospital, then jail after being mistaken for a communist leader.  He foils an escape attempt and is treated like clink royalty; once out he wants back in, ’till he meets the gamin(Paulette Goddard).  They dream of a home together and Goddard’s eyes blaze.  They almost get it too, but end up walking into the ‘sunset,’ down a road to ‘Smile,’ part of a great soundtrack from Charlie.  The silhouette of the Lady & the Tramp.  A perfect film.
