My nine year old daughter and I just enjoyed the heck out of Criterion's new release of Modern Times. She loves The Tramp! She giggled like she has at few movies, and was really touched by the story. Pretty amazing I'd say for a movie that's 75 years old. The new release has very good pq and aq for a film of this era. And it has some great making of docs that explain the special effects as well as an alternate ending that Chaplin worked on. I see that The Great Dictator is coming up soon. I sure hope that Criterion is going to do all of Chaplin's major films. My favorites after these are City Lights, The Gold Rush, and The Circus, although there are others I like a lot too. What are your favorite Chaplin movies? Why do you think he still lives on when so few actors who reached the peak of their careers in the 20s and 30s are known or enjoyed at all today...?
