An imaginative, often slapstick satire on the alienating and disruptive effects of mass production and automation. Charlie Chaplin, in his last portrayal of his famous character the Tramp, goes from a factory worker to jailbird to night watchman to singing waiter, beset on all fronts by bad luck, misunderstandings, and unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Befriended only by a lovely but wild street waif, he labors against all odds to make a life for himself. Primarily a silent film with music, sound effects, and some spoken and sung dialogue
