When his boss demands more speed and efficiency, Chaplin goes crazy from his repetitious assembly line job. Primarily a silent film with music and sound effects, but occasional voices emanate from radios and television screens.

The Tramp works in a factory, goes to prison, and some other stuff vaguely connected by the theme of The Great Depression Sucks.

It's funny, and that's all I'm really looking for in a Charlie Chaplin movie. The lack of a story hurts it a lot, though.

The tramp, one of the coolest characters of all time, captivated audiences with iconic looks and whimsical antics. In "Modern Times" (1936), he serenades with a nonsense song, an on-screen vocal appearance, and a pre-Michael Jackson cool iconic moonwalk.
