Summary
In the last film he made during the silent era, Charlie Chaplin shines as director, composer, and star. A gag-packed comedy full of audacious set pieces, it showcases silent cinema's most popular entertainer and ranks among Chaplin's finest. This is Chaplin's 1969 rerelease with an original score by Chaplin himself
