"Modern Times." (1936, NR, 87 minutes). Charlie Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine. With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, “Modern Times”—though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound and even song—is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy. Films are sponsored by UGA Parents and Families Association.
