He stands alone as the greatest entertainer of modern times! No one on earth can make you laugh as heartily or touch your heart as deeply...the whole world laughs, cries and thrills to his priceless genius!

Charlie Chaplin was, is and always will be one of the best authors of all times.

This was my first Charlie Chaplin's film. I just had seen a few clips from many of his film but never saw one entirely. I should have started from the beggining but I don't know I just wanted to see this one.
This film isn't totally silent it has a few dialogues and sound effects moments. Chaplin written, directed and composed all of the music for this film. He did a great job in all!
This was the last appearance of The Tramp and his last silent film. In this The Tramp struggles to survive modern times, the industrial world and the Great Depression leading to a massive unemployment and poverty through those years. Due to that there are some political messages hidden during the film. But the most important message of all that this film wants to transmit is that we have to find a way to overcome the adversities of life and always "Smile", like the beautiful song he wrote and composed for this film says.
Overall this was very funny and entertaining, will never get age!
Charlie Chaplin was without any doubt was one of the great comedy actors ever.
