Modern Times (1936) Director: Charles Chaplin Writer: Charles Chaplin Cast: Charles Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Henry Bergman Genre: Comedy, Dram.
Between the solid emotional core and the cleverness of the writing, Modern Times may not prove to be a laugh riot and it does have moments that don't really work (such as that whole sequence where Chaplin and Goddard must work in an upscale club/restaurant) but it's a fairly dependable little film.
