The Genius of Charlie Chaplin in ‘Modern Times’

[24 October 2011]

By Sam Phillips

Modern Times is my favorite Charlie Chaplin film. I love this last scene with his heartbreaking song, “Smile”, underneath it. It must have been amazing to be at the forefront of making movies, creating Hollywood and building Los Angeles. I wish we could start over. Not for the end result, but for the ride.
